Empirical Rule

Week 2 iLab Instructions-BEGIN

Ø Data have already been formatted and entered into an Excel worksheet.

Ø Obtain the data file for this lab from your instructor

Ø The names of each variable from the survey are in the first row of the Worksheet. This row has a background color of gray to identify it as the variable names. All other rows of the Worksheet represent a certain students’ answers to the survey questions. Therefore, the rows are called observations and the columns are called variables. On page 6 of this lab, you will find a code sheet that identifies the correspondence between the variable names and the survey questions.

Ø Follow the directions below and then paste the graphs from Excel in the grey areas for question 1 through 3. Type your answers to questions 4 through 11 where noted in the grey areas. When asked for explanations, please give thorough, multi-sentence or paragraph length explanations.

Ø PLEASE NOTE that various versions of Excel may have slightly different formula commands. For example, some versions use =STDEV.S while other versions would use =STDEVS (without the dot before the last “S”).

Ø The completed iLab Word Document with your responses to the 11 questions will be the ONE and only document submitted to the dropbox. When saving and submitting the document, you are required to use the following format: Last Name_ First Name_Week2iLab.

Week 2 iLab Instructions-END 2

Creating Graphs

1. Create a pie chart for the variable Car Color: Select the column with the Car variable, including the title of Car Color. Click on **Insert**, and then **Recommended Charts**. It should show a clustered column and click **OK**. Once the chart is shown, right click on the chart (main area) and select **Change Chart Type**. Select **Pie **and **OK**. Click on the pie slices, right click **Add Data Labels**, and select **Add Data Callouts**. Add an appropriate title. Copy and paste the chart here. (4 points)

2. Create a histogram for the variable Height. You need to create a frequency distribution for the data by hand. Use 5 classes, find the class width, and then create the classes. Once you have the classes, count how many data points fall within each class. It may be helpful to sort the data based on the **Height **variable first. Create a new worksheet in Excel by clicking on the + along the bottom of the screen and type in the categories and the frequency for each category. Then select the frequency table, click on **Insert**, then **Recommended Charts **and choose the column chart shown and click **OK**. Right click on one of the bars and select **Format Data Series**. In the pop up box, change the **Gap Width **to 0. Add an appropriate title and axis label. Copy and paste the graph here. (4 points)

3. Type up a stem-and-leaf plot chart in the box below for the variable Money, with a space between the stems and the group of leaves in each line. Use the tens value as the stem and the ones value for the leaves. It may be helpful to sort the data based on the Money variable first.

An example of a stem-and-leaf plot would look like this:

0 4 5 6 9 3

1 5 6 3 6

2 9 2

The stem-and-leaf plot shown above would be for data 4, 5, 6, 9, 3, 15, 16, 13, 16, 29, and 22. (4 points)

Calculating Descriptive Statistics

4. Calculate descriptive statistics for the variable Height by Gender. Click on **Insert **and then **Pivot Table**. Click in the top box and select all the data (including labels) from **Height **through **Gender**. Also click on “new worksheet” and then **OK**. On the right of the new sheet, click on **Height **and **Gender**, making sure that **Gender **is in the **Rows **box and **Height **is in the **Values **box. Click on the down arrow next to **Height **in the **Values **box and select **Value Field Settings**. In the pop up box, click **Average **then **OK**. Type in the averages below. Then click on the down arrow next to **Height **in the **Values **box again and select **Value Field Settings**. In the pop up box, click on **StdDev **then **OK**. Type the standard deviations below. (3 points)

Mean

Standard deviation

Females

Males

Short Answer Writing Assignment

All answers should be complete sentences.

5. What is the most common color of car for students who participated in this survey? Explain how you arrived at your answer. (5 points)

From the pie chart we can see that blue is the most common color of car for students who participated in this survey because it has the highest frequency.

6. What is seen in the histogram created for the heights of students in this class (include the shape)? Explain your answer. (5 points)

The histogram showed that the middlemost class has the highest frequency and the classes on the either side of the middle most class has approximately equal frequency. This indicates that the distribution of height is roughly symmetric.

7. What is seen in the stem and leaf plot for the money variable (include the shape)? Explain your answer. (5 points)

The 1st class has the highest frequency and the frequency of the higher class is smaller. This implies that the distribution is positively skewed.

8. Compare the mean for the heights of males and the mean for the heights of females in these data. Compare the values and explain what can be concluded based on the numbers. (5 points)

The mean for males is higher than for the females thus the comparison we can draw is that, the males have higher average height than females.

9. Compare the standard deviation for the heights of males and the standard deviation for the heights of females in the class. Compare the values and explain what can be concluded based on the numbers. (5 points)

The standard deviation for males is higher than for the females thus the comparison we can draw is that, the males have higher variation in height than females.

10. Using the empirical rule, 95% of female heights should be between what two values? Either show work or explain how your answer was calculated. (5 points)

The empirical rule states that 95% of the values for normal distribution falls within the 2 standard deviation around the mean. Here the distribution is symmetric so normality can be assumed so the required values are 67.05882353-2*3.111884241 = 60.83505505 and

67.05882353+2*3.111884241 =73.28259201 for females.

And, 69.66666667-2*3.307744922= 63.05117683 and 69.66666667+2*3.307744922= 76.28215651 for males.

11. Using the empirical rule, 68% of male heights should be between what two values? Either show work or explain how your answer was calculated. (5 points)

The empirical rule states that 68% of the values for normal distribution falls within the 1 standard deviation around the mean. Here the distribution is symmetric so normality can be assumed so the required values are 67.05882353-1*3.111884241 = 63.94693929 and

67.05882353+1*3.111884241 = 70.17070777 for females.

And, 69.66666667-1*3.307744922= 66.35892175 and 69.66666667+1*3.307744922= 72.97441159 for males.
