1.   (6 points) Is the number of seats in a movie theater qualitative data or quantitative data? Explain!

It is quantitative since it can be used in calculation such as mean number of seat in all movie theaters.

2.   (6 points) A survey of 1353 American households found that 20% of the households own a computer. Identify the
     population and the sample.

American Households is the population and 1353 of the households is the sample.

3.   (6 points) The distribution of blood types for 100 Americans is listed in the table. If one donor is selected at random,
     find the probability of selecting a person with blood type A+ or A-. Just one probability is being asked for!

5.   (8 points) Use the standard normal distribution to find P(-2.25 < z < -0.27). = .3936 - .0122 = .3814


6.   (8 points) Find the area of the indicated region under the standard normal curve. P( z> -1.30) = .9032
7.          The Histogram below shows a sample of 49 heights in inches.

a)          (8 points) Without doing any calculations, just using the concept of mean which selection below is the most
            reasonable estimate of the mean? Estimate is rounded to nearest inch. Circle your selection.

        8.        (10 points) A placement exam for entrance into a math class yields a mean of 80 and a standard deviation of 10.
                  The distribution of the scores is roughly bell-shaped. Use the Empirical Rule to find the percentage of scores that
                  lie between 70 and 90. Use the Empirical Rule to find the percentage of scores that lie between 60 and 80.
                  Percentage within one standard deviation of the mean is 68%.
                  Percentage within 2 standard deviations of the mean is 95%, due to the symmetry half of the 95% is between 60
                  and 80. The answer is 47.5%.



        9.        (10 points) The heights (in inches) of 32 adult males are on the excel workbook for this test. Find the 5 number
                  summary.

        11. (12 points) Robert DeNiro has had acting roles in over 88 films. A sample of the lifetime gross income from 20 of
            his movies are on the excel workbook for this test. Find the mean and standard deviation for this sample data set.
            Based on this data how likely is it that his next film will have a lifetime gross of $250,000,000 or more? Why?
