What would you expect the shape and variation of the distribution to be? A. Symmetric with little variation B. Symmetric with large variation C. Skewed right with large variation D. Skewed left with little variation Question 7 of 20 5.0/ 5.0 Points A softball player has a batting average of exactly .300 and no more than 60 times at bat. Suppose this player gets 5 hits in her next 6 times at bat. What is the highest possible average she could now have? A. .500 B. .833 C. .348 D. There is insufficient information to answer the question Question 8 of 20 5.0/ 5.0 Points The federal government requires a car manufacturer to have a minimum miles per gallon (mpg) average over the models it makes. Suppose that the mpg’s for the five models of a manufacturer are 19, 21, 22, 28, and 18, and the government requirement is 27 mpg. The last of the models is to be redesigned to meet the government requirement. What must the new mpg of this model be to meet the requirement? A. 27 mpg B. 29 mpg C. 30 mpg D. 54 mpg Question 9 of 20 5.0/ 5.0 Points The normal monthly precipitation (in inches) for August is listed for 20 different U.S. cities. Find the median of the data. A. 2.79 in. B. 3.45 in. C. 3.35 in. D. 2.45 in. Question 10 of 20 0.0/ 5.0 Points This question I have completed just as the rule of finding an average by adding up all the number then dividing by the addend so try doing it by the percentage numbers instead. Most likely answer is D. The federal government requires a car manufacturer to have a minimum miles per gallon (mpg) average over the cars it makes. Suppose that the models and mpg’s for a manufacturer are Corsair (31 mpg), Futura (30 mpg), Retro (37 mpg), and Envy (44 mpg). Twenty percent of the cars sold are Corsairs, 30% are Futuras, 40% are Retros, and 10% are Envys. Find the average mpg for this manufacturer. A. 35.5 mpg B. 34.0 mpg C. 34.4 mpg D. None of the above Question 11 of 20 5.0/ 5.0 Points Find the mode(s) for the given sample data. 20, 49, 46, 43, 49, 43, 49, 20, 22 A. 43 B. 49 C. 20 D. 22 Question 12 of 20 5.0/ 5.0 Points The host of a dinner party purchases wine based on the weighted average of clarity (10%), bouquet (5%), friendliness to the palate (5%), storage ability of opened bottles (40%), and price (40%). Suppose that Bone Ranch Wave has scores in these categories of 4, 5, 3, 8, and 9, respectively. What is its rating? A. 5.80 B. 5.00 C. 7.60 D. None of the previous

Can not tell by the data available Question 16 of 20 5.0/ 5.0 Points The mathematics SAT scores of the seven students in a mathematics seminar are 533, 553, 578, 586, 619, 626, and 633. Suppose that the student with the score 533 drops the seminar and is replaced by a student with a score of 585. What will happen to the mean and the median scores of the class? A. Neither the mean nor the median will change. B. Both the median and the mean will increase. C. The median will increase; the mean will be unchanged. D. The mean will increase; the median will be unchanged.
