True/False for Questions 1 -10

1.?Histograms and stem plots are graphs of distributionswhere the variable is quantitative.

2.?The slope and thecorrelation coefficient must always have the same sign.

3. ?When you use the median to describe the center of a distribution then you would use the standard deviation to describethe variability.

4. ?Variables such as zip codes, distance traveled and heightcan all be considered quantitative.

5.?If a person had a Z-score of .25, then their actual raw score is in the lowest 25thpercent.

6. ?The strength of relationship between two variables is approximated by the size of the slope.

7. ?If the relationship between X and Y is very strong, then there is good evidence that changes in X cause changes in Y.

8. ?The correlation coefficient (r) must be a value between -1.0 and +1.0.

9. ?The slope and the intercept both measure the average amount ofchange between two variables.

10. ?In a normal distribution, 5 % of the observations are less than two standard deviations below the mean.

When you use the median to describe the center of a distribution then you would use the standard

deviation to describe the variability.

4. False

False

6. False

Variables such as zip codes, distance traveled and height can all be considered quantitative. 5.

if a person had a Z-score of .25, then their actual raw score is in the lowest 25th percent.

The strength of relationship between two variables is approximated by the size of the slope.

7. True
