• Go to www.imdb.com and select IMDb Top 250. (To
find this link, scroll down and look for User’s Favorites
in the sidebar on the left.) This list ranks the top 250
movies as voted by regular users of the Internet Movie
Database (IMDb).
• (Note: These are listed by ranking, not by number of
voters. The voters did not vote for a favorite movie;
rather, they ranked the movies on a scale of 0–10).
• You will compute statistics on the number of voters
who provided input on the movies, without actually
using 250 pieces of data in your calculation. (If you
wish, choose the IMDb Bottom 100 instead.)
Random
• Use your calculator or a random number table
or www.random.org to select 10 of the 250
movies.
• Write down the name of each movie, its rank
on the list, and the number of voters who
ranked it.
• Produce a table with the values
