Summarizing quantitative data Describe the spread in running times based on quartiles.
The data represents the average drive (in yards) for 186 professional golfers on the men’s PGA tour in 2011. The first quartile is 285.2 yards and third quartile is 297.5 yards. 2021-02-01
Calculation:
The first quartile $$Q_{1}$$, is the value such that 25% of the observations are smaller and 75% are larger.
The second quartile $$Q_{2}$$ is the value such that 50% of the observations are smaller and 50% are larger which is also called as the median.
The third quartile $$Q_{3}$$, is the value such that 75% of the observations are smaller and 25% are larger.
The interquartile range is given below:
$$IQR=Q_{3}-Q_{1}$$
$$=297.5-285.2=12.3$$
Thus, middle 50% of the distribution with distance of the balls lies between the distance of 285.2 yards and 279.5 yards and that interquartile range as 12.3 yards.

Interpret the location, direction, and distance (near or far) of the following zscores: $$a. -2.00 b. 1.25 c. 3.50 d. -0.34$$ 4. You are part of a trivia team and have tracked your team’s performance since you started playing, so you know that your scores are normally distributed with $$\mu = 78$$ and $$\sigma = 12$$. Recently, a new person joined the team, and you think the scores have gotten better. Use hypothesis testing to see if the average score has improved based on the following 8 weeks’ worth of score data: $$82, 74, 62, 68, 79, 94, 90, 81, 80$$. 5. You get hired as a server at a local restaurant, and the manager tells you that servers’ tips are $42 on average but vary about $$12 (\mu = 42, \sigma = 12)$$. You decide to track your tips to see if you make a different amount, but because this is your first job as a server, you don’t know if you will make more or less in tips. After working 16 shifts, you find that your average nightly amount is$44.50 from tips. Test for a difference between this value and the population mean at the $$\alpha = 0.05$$ level of significance. Energy is conventionally measured in Calories as well as in joules.One Calorie in nutrition is 1 kilocalorie, which we define inChapter 11 as 1 kcal = 4,186 J. Metabolizing 1 gram of fat canrelease 9.00 kcal. A student decides to try to lose weight byexercising. She plans to run up and down the stairs in a footballstadium as fast as she can and as many times as necessary. Is thisin itself a practical way to lose weight?
yes
no
To evaluate the program, suppose she runs up a flight of90 steps, each 0.150 m high, in67.0 s. For simplicity, ignore theenergy she uses in coming down (which is small). Assume that atypical efficiency for human muscles is 20.0%. This means that whenyour body converts 100 J from metabolizing fat, 20 J goes intodoing mechanical work (here, climbing stairs). The remainder goesinto internal energy. Assume the student's mass is 57.0 kg.
(a) How many times must she run the flight ofstairs to lose 1 pound of fat?
(b) What is her average power output, in watts and in horsepower,as she is running up the stairs?

The data represents the costs of nine compact refrigerators rated very good or excellent by Consumer Reports on their website.  Money reports that the average annual cost of the first year of owning and caring for a large dog in 2017 is $1,448. The Irish Red and White Setter Association of America has requested a study to estimate the annual first-year cost for owners of this breed. A sample of 50 will be used. Based on past studies, the population standard deviation is assumed known with $$\displaystyle\sigma=\{230}.$$ $$\begin{matrix} 1,902 & 2,042 & 1,936 & 1,817 & 1,504 & 1,572 & 1,532 & 1,907 & 1,882 & 2,153 \\ 1,945 & 1,335 & 2,006 & 1,516 & 1,839 & 1,739 & 1,456 & 1,958 & 1,934 & 2,094 \\ 1,739 & 1,434 & 1,667 & 1,679 & 1,736 & 1,670 & 1,770 & 2,052 & 1,379 & 1,939\\ 1,854 & 1,913 & 2,163 & 1,737 & 1,888 & 1,737 & 2,230 & 2,131 & 1,813 & 2,118\\ 1,978 & 2,166 & 1,482 & 1,700 & 1,679 & 2,060 & 1,683 & 1,850 & 2,232 & 2,294 \end{matrix}$$ (a) What is the margin of error for a $$95\%$$ confidence interval of the mean cost in dollars of the first year of owning and caring for this breed?
