Knowledge             
1. Eighteen executives reported the following number of telephone calls made during a randomly  
    selected week.
28    8    13    30    51    19
19    12    17    49    10    14
8    21    35    28    36    12

Find the following. Show all your work clearly.
 (a) Range                                                                [1]    


 (b) Q1                     
    [2]    

 (c) Q2                 
    [2]    


 (d) Mode                 
    [1]    


 (e) D9                                                                                                                         


 (f) Q3                                                                                                                        

(g) The interquartile range                                                                                              


(h) The standard deviation for this sample                                           


(i) Variance for this sample                                                                                    


(j) Coefficient of variation                                                                        


(k) Interpercentile range between   P20  and  P80.                                                      

 

(l) Draw a box and whisker plot for this data.                        

2. The mean of 4 numbers is 12 and the mean of 3 different numbers is 21. What is the mean of
    the 7 numbers together? Produce an algebraic solution. Guess and check is unacceptable [2].

 

Application

3. Delivery time for a sample population of 80 pizzas are as follows:

time
(minutes)    frequency
0.5 to 10.5    5
10.5 to 20.5    36
20.5 to 30.5    24
30.5 to 40.5    12
40.5 to 50.5    3

 (a) The mean delivery time [2]               (b) The standard deviation of the delivery times [3]

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(c) Coefficient of variation for this sample [2]               

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


4.  An academic award is to be granted to the student with the highest overall score in four weighted  
      categories. Here are the scores for the three finalists:                             [5]

Criterion    Weighting Factor    Carl    Fred    Sandra
Academic Achievement    3    4    3    5
Extra-Curricular Activities    2    4    4    4
Community Service    2    2    5    3
Interview    1    5    5    4

Calculate the weighted-mean score for each student. Who should win the award?

      
               Communication

5.    Suppose that teachers receive a 5% raise each year.  The amount of the raise will vary from $1500 to $3000, depending on recent salary.  How would a 5% across-the-board raise affect the interquartile range, the standard deviation, and the variance? Provide some mathematical justification to show by what percentage each would increase/decrease?    [5]


6.    In a group of 1200 students, Raymond received a score of 86% at the Waterloo Senior Math Contest.  
       This puts him in the 92nd percentile.  Explain what this means.          [2]


                  Part D: Thinking/Inquiry

 7.    Sarina is in Mr. Dadar’s Calculus class. She has written three evaluations so far (one test and two quests).  Category weightings are as follows:

K/U    APP    Inquiry    Communication
25%    20%    15%    10%
        Each quest has a weight factor of 2 in each category that is being assessed and a test has a weight factor of 3 for each category. She has received the following marks.

Quest 1    K/U:   5/8    APP:  7/10        
Test 1    K/U:  12/13    APP:   19/24    Inquiry: 7/11    Com.   7/8
Quest 2        APP: 7 /11        Com.   8/8

What is her current mark in the course? Approximate your final answer to one decimal place.  [7]
