Module 7 Measures of Central Tendency Applications

Our Seventh Discussion will focus on Chapter 12 (Statistics). I would like for you to think upon a real life situation that you may apply with any of the sections regarding (Chapter 12.1 to 12.3) Sections. Please remember that our discussion must relate to real-life situations and within Chapter 12 sections.

This will require some research and please post your reference of the website you used as guidance. (Do not plagiarize)

Please review the following link regarding how to solve Chapter 12, Statistics section.

Module 7 Measures of Central Tendency Real Life

One runnerâ€™s times in the first six races of the year were 18.5, 18.2, 19, 18.75, 19.1, and 19 minutes. Another runnerâ€™s times were 17.2, 18, 17.5, 18.75, 19, and 18.2 minutes. What are the range and mean of each runnerâ€™s scores? Use your results to compare the runnersâ€™ skills.

Module 8 Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion

After reading and practicing the procedural steps with the Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion. Hopefully, you are able to identify that the measures of central tendency and dispersion are often called descriptive statistics because they can help you describe your data.

Part 1

The table below displays the number of uncles of each student in a class of Elementary Algebra. Find the mean, median and mode of the uncles per student for this data set.

 Score 0 1 2 3 4 5 Frequency 2 5 4 6 10 8

or or

Part 2

Find, to the nearest tenth, the standard deviation of the distribution:

 Score 1 2 3 4 5 Frequency 14 15 14 17 10
