In an exit poll during the 2004 presidential election, voters were asked to name the issue that most affected their vote for a candidate for presidency. The following table summarizes their responses.
Moral Values: 22%
Economy/jobs: 20%
Terrorism: 19%
Iraq: 15%
Health Care: 8%
Taxes: 5%
Education: 4%
As you will notice, these percentages add up to 93%. Assume that the remaining 7% of these voters names other issues and let us denote these issues as Other. Draw a bar graph to display these data.

2.A summary value, usually numerical, that describes a sample is called a parameter.
3.A researcher records the average age for a group of 25 preschool children selected to participate in a research study. The average age is an example of a statistic.
4.The median is the most commonly used measure of central tendency.
5.The mode is the best way to measure central tendency for data from a nominal scale of measurement.
6.A distribution of scores and a mean of 55 and a standard deviation of 4. The variance for this distribution is 16.
7.In a distribution with a mean of M = 36 and a standard deviation of SD = 8, a score of 40 would be considered an extreme value.
8.In a distribution with a mean of M = 76 and a standard deviation of SD = 7, a score of 91 would be considered an extreme value.
9.A negative correlation means that as the X values decrease, the Y values also tend to decrease.
10.The goal of a hypothesis test is to demonstrate that the patterns observed in the sample data represent real patterns in the population and are not simply due to chance or sampling error.

In Major League baseball, do Left-Handed hitters and Right-Handed hitters tend to have different batting averages? We will study this question by taking random samples of m=45 seasonal batting averages from left-handed batters and n=53 seasonal batting averages from right-handed batters. The mean batting averages were x= .256 for the left-handers and y=.254 for the right-handers. It is recognized that the true standard deviations of batting averages are σx = .0324 for left-handed batters and σy = .0298 for right-handed batters. The true (unknown) mean batting average for left-handers = μx , while the true unknown mean batting average for right-handers = μy . We would like to examine μx − μy . a) What is the standard deviation of the distribution of x? b) What is the standard deviation of the distribution of x - y ? c) Create a 98% confidence interval for μx − μy ? leftparen1.gif , rightparen1.gif d) What is the length of the confidence interval in part c) ?
