Sales Thousands of Homes Total United Western Price of Home States States under 22 —under 54 —under 64 or over 94 41 Convert these data to relative frequency distributions one for the total United States the other for the western states. Enter C2 into the first line of the Y vari- ables box.

In so doing the network is assuming that millions of other viewers across the nation are also watching competing programs.

Frequency The number of data values falling within each class. The labels Segment and Sales have already been entered at the top of columns C1 and C2 respectively. The instructions for using each template shatistics contained within the template itself. Sometimes statistics provides nothing more than entertainment—e. Contents vii Chapter 4: As such it could be considered the single data value most typical of all the values. The two vari- ables do appear to be related—teams with a higher payroll did tend to win more games during the season.

Relative frequency distributions would convert the groups to the same size: Introduction and Background The Histogram The histogram describes a frequency distribution by using a series of sttistics rectangles each of which has a length proportional to either the frequency or the relative frequency of the class it represents.

If not provide a set of data that could have led to this display. Compared with the frequency introductionn the stem-and-leaf display provides more detail since it can describe the individual data statistis as well as show how many are in each group or stem. The former is referred to as descriptive statistics while the latter is called inferential statistics.

Place the frequency distribution for the new ball next to the one for the conventional ball. These are typically referred to as the dependent variable y and the independent variable x.

Introduction and Background Excel and Minitab differ slightly in how they describe the classes in a frequency distribution. Unlike the mean the median is not influenced by extreme high or low values in the data.

This is because each variable has its name in the first cell of its block. Springdale Shopping Survey 54 Chapter 3: Many of these interesting and insightful applets are customized by their author to specific content and examples in this textbook and they include a total of 85 applet exercises.

What kinds of decisions might be made on the basis of this information 1.
