Modality:
On describing the peak ness in shape of distribution, then it is termed as modality of the distribution.
And thus Based on the number of peaks, the modality is classified into three types namely unimodal, bimodal and multimodal.
Unimodal: The number of peak is one.
Bimodal: The number of peak is two.
Multimodal: The number of peak is three or more than three.
From the histogram obtained part (b) it is observed that, it has only one peak and hence it is considered as roughly unimodal in nature with left skewed distribution.
The distribution has center value at 283, among 50 percent of the data lies between the range 278 to 288 and the overall range of the histogram lies from 265 to 299. There are several low performance scores namely California, west Virginia, New Mexico, Alabama and Mississippi also because of these low scores the mean is lowerthan.the median.

When σ is unknown and the sample is of size n30, there are two methods for computing confidence intervals for μ. Method 1: Use the Student’s t distribution with d.f.=n-1. This is the method used in the text. It is widely employed in statistical studies. Also, most statistical software packages use this method.

Method 2: When n30, use the sample standard deviation s as an estimate for σ, and then use the standard normal distribution. This method is based on the fact that for large samples, s is a fairly good approximation for σ. Also, for large n, the critical values for the Student’s t distribution approach those of the standard normal distribution. Consider a random sample of size n=31, with sample mean x=45.2 and sample standard deviation s=5.3. Compute 90%, 95%, and 99% confidence intervals for μ using Method 2 with the standard normal distribution. Use s as an estimate for σ. Round endpoints to two digits after the decimal.

How important are birdies (a score of one under par on a given golf hole) in determining the final total score of a woman golfer? From the U.S. Women’s OpenWeb site, we obtained data on number of birdies during a tournament and final score for 63 women golfers. The data are presented on the WeissStats CD. a) Obtain a scatterplot for the data. b) Decide whether finding a regression line for the data is reasonable. If so, then also do parts (c)-(f). c) Determine and interpret the regression equation for the data. d) Identify potential outliers and influential observations. e) In case a potential outlier is present, remove it and discuss the effect. f) In case a potential influential observation is present, remove it and discuss the effect.

Let X B i n o m i a l ( n , p )
H + 0 : p .5
H 1 : p < .5
How do we evaluate the p-value?
ie. P ( X x p >= .5 )
I have seen settings where this is just interpreted as P ( X x p = .5 ), but I'm not sure how this is the same thing.
