1

How do a parameter and a statistic​ differ?

2

Determine whether the given value is a statistic or a parameter.

A homeowner measured the voltage supplied to his home on a random sample of 38 days​, and the average​ (mean) value is 100.3 volts.

The given value is a statistic for the year because the data collected represent a sample.

3

Which of the following would be classified as categorical​ data?

4

Determine whether the given value is from a discrete or continuous data set.

A continuous data set because there are infinitely many possible values and those values cannot be counted.

5

Determine which of the four levels of measurement​ (nominal, ordinal,​ interval, ratio) is most appropriate.

Voltage measurements of batteries: 1.5 V, 3 V, 4.5 V, 6 V, and 7.5 V

When a car is randomly​ selected, it is found to have enough room to seat 6 people.

A discrete data set because there are a finite number of possible values.

10

Determine whether the given value is a statistic or a parameter.

A homeowner measured the voltage supplied to his home on 287 days of a given year​, and the average​ (mean) value is 126.4 volts.

The given value is a statistic for the year because the data collected represent a sample.
