\(\begin{array}{|c|c|} \hline 1,4 & 1:5 & 1.7 & 19,29 & 2.3 & 9°6 & 2.6 & 9.6 & 9.8 & 0:9 & 3'1 & 3.2 & 913 & 3.3 & 3.4 & 4.9 & 4.4 & 45 \\ \hline \end{array}\)

Total number of values is odd so median is the \(10^{th}\) value that is 2.8%.
So new mean is equal to 2.8%
Standard deviation decreases. Las Vegas job growth percentage works as an outlier in the distribution so omitting Las Vegas decreases standard deviation also.
Las Vegas value is last in order data set so omitting it does not change IQR.

An investor plans to put $50,000 in one of four investments. The return on each investment depends on whether next year’s economy is strong or weak. The following table summarizes the possible payoffs, in dollars, for the four investments.
Certificate of deposit
Office complex
Land speculation
Technical school
amp. Strong amp.6,000 amp.15,000 amp.33,000 amp.5,500
amp. Weak amp.6,000 amp.5,000 amp.−17,000 amp.10,000
Let V, W, X, and Y denote the payoffs for the certificate of deposit, office complex, land speculation, and technical school, respectively. Then V, W, X, and Y are random variables. Assume that next year’s economy has a 40% chance of being strong and a 60% chance of being weak. a. Find the probability distribution of each random variable V, W, X, and Y. b. Determine the expected value of each random variable. c. Which investment has the best expected payoff? the worst? d. Which investment would you select? Explain.
