Presentation Transcript
Descriptive Statistics II:By the end of this class you should be able to:

• describe the meaning of and calculate the mean and standard deviation of a sample

• estimate normal proportions based on mean and standard deviation

• plot a histograms with alternative scaling

Palm: Section 7.1, 7.2

• Prepare a single figure with two plots

• a histogram of March highs (row 2)

• a histogram of April highs (row 4)

• Label these plots fully

• Print out the your commands and the resulting figure

Mean

Central Tendency

>> mean(x)

Standard Deviation

>> std(x)

difference  deviation of each point about the mean

squared  all values positive

Summation  yields one number

Divide by n-1 normalize the sum for based on degrees of freedom

Data analysis of the breaking strength of a certain fabric shows that it is normally distributed with a mean of 200 lb and a variance (2) of 9.

• Estimate the percentage of fabric samples that will have a breaking strength between 197 lb and 203 lb.

• Estimate the percentage of fabric samples that will have a breaking strength no less than 194 lb.

Additional Example (not covered in class)Looking at two sets of data

• Look at a histogram of the second set of data, ‘cord2’

• How would you compare it to cord the first set of data?

• What problems do you run into?
