Response to question 1

Math grades: 99 34 86 57 73 85 91 93 46 96 88 79 68 85 89

Mean

Mean = Sum of math grades (X) / N (Number of students)

Mean= (99+34+86+57+73+85+91+93+46+96+88+79+68+85+89)/15

Mean=77.93333

Standard Deviation

To get standard deviation we find the square root of variance

S=â€‘X-M2n-1

Step 1: calculation of variance

Subtract the mean grade from each of the values

99-77.93333=21.06667

34-77.93333=-43.93333

86-77.93333=8.06667

57-77.93333=-20.93333

73-77.93333=-4.93333

85-77.93333=7.06667

91-77.93333=13.06667

93-77.93333=15.06667

46-77.93333=-31.93333

96-77.93333=18.06667

88-77.93333=10.06667

79-77.93333=1.06667

68-77.93333=-9.93333

85-77.93333=7.06667

89-77.93333=11.06667

Next you square all answers from subtraction above

(21.06667)2=443.80458

(-43.93333)2=1930.13748

(8.06667)2=65.07116

(-20.93333)2=438.20430

(-4.93333)2=24.33774

(7.06667)2=49.93782

(13.06667)2=170.73786

(15.06667)2=227.00454

(-31.93333)2=1019.73756

(18.06667)2=326.40456

(10.06667)2=101.33784

(1.06667)2=1.13778

(-9.93333)2=98.67104

(7.06667)2=49.93782

(11.06667)2=122.47118

Then add all the squared numbers

(443.80458+1930.13748+65.07116+438.20430+24.33774+49.93782+170.73786+227.00454+

1019.73756+326.40456+101.33784+1.13778+98.67104+49.93782+122.47118=5068.93326

Then divide the sum of squares by (n-1)

Where n=15, n-1 is 15-1=14

5068.93326/14=362.06666

Variance=362.06666

Step 2 calculate standard deviation

Standard deviation is the square root of variance

Standard deviation (S)= 362.06666

S=19.02805

* Scores within one standard deviation of the mean

Mean=77.93333

To get scores within one standard deviation 77.93333 +1 /-1

77.93333-1=76.93333

77.93333+1=78.93333

There is no score within one standard deviation of the mean. The nearest score is 79 but falls outside the range of 76.93333 and 78.93333

* Scores within two standard deviations of the mean

To get scores within two standard deviations 77.93333 +2 /-2

77.93333-2=75.9333

77.93333+2=79.93333

There is only one score within two standard deviations of the mean that is 79

Response to question 2

Mean=74.8%

Standard deviation=7.57

* Approximation of students who scored above 85%

Mean score=74.8%

Standard deviation of the marks =7.57

First step: Z-score for 85%

z = (X - Î¼) / Ïƒ

(85%-74.8%)/7.57=1.35

Second step: P (Z<1.35) =0.9115

Third step: subtract this from 1

1-0.9115=0.0885

Probability that some students scored above 85% is 0.0885

Students who scored above 85%

0.0885*15=1.3275

Round off since there is no fraction of a student

Two students scored above 85%.

* finding variance when given the standard deviation

If you are given the standard deviation, you simply square it to get the variance

Standard deviation2=variance

Variance=7.572

Variance=57.3049

Response to question 3

Standard Deviation

To get standard deviation we find the square root of variance

S=â€‘X-M2n-1

Step 1: calculation of variance

Subtract the mean grade from each of the values

Mean = ($216+ $135+$281+ $189+ $218+ $193+ $299+ $235)/8

Mean= $220.75

$216-$220.75=-$4.75

$135-$220.75=-$85.75

$281-$220.75=$60.25

$189-$220.75=-$31.75

$218-$220.75=-$2.75

$193-$220.75=-$27.75

$299-$220.75=$78.25

$235-$220.75=$14.25

Next you square all answers from subtraction above

(-$4.75)2=$22.5625

(-$85.75)2=$7353.0625

($60.25)2=$3630.0625

(-$31.75)2=$1008.0625

(-$2.75)2=$7.5625

(-$27.75)2=$770.0625

($78.25)2=$6123.0625

($14.25)2=$203.0625

Then add all the squared numbers

($22.5625+$7353.0625+$3630.0625+$10...
