**Question description**

1. Using probability: How can you use probability to improve your chances of winning at a casino. Provide specific examples using concepts learned in this module.

2. Outliers: We know many types of data fall into a normal distribution with most of the observations falling toward the middle. However, sometimes data are outliers or data that are very different—larger or smaller—from the rest of the members of the sample. Think of an example in the real world of an outlier and discuss its effect.

3. Errors in testing: Think of one example of a Type I and Type II error in everyday life and comment on the ramifications of those errors.

4. Association: We know association does not imply causation, but what does this mean in your own words. Provide and discuss an example of two variables that are associated but not by a cause and effect relationship.

5. .The written assignment draws on case study discussion exercises at the end of chapter. When preparing your assignment, please identify each answer clearly by question and its number.Case Study: Greatest American Screen Legends (p.31): Answer questions a, b, c.

6. In your own words, interpret the data and note the shape of the
distribution of the data provided from ** Case Study: Highest Paid
Women**(Chapter 2, p. 35). To help guide your interpretation, include the
following:

· frequency distribution table

· stem and leaf plot

· histogram

· sample mean and median

· sample standard deviation.

You must calculate results by hand (though you may use any technology of your choice to verify your answers

9. Case Study: The “Chip
Ahoy! 1,000 Chips Challenge (p. 357): Answer a, b, c, e (NOT d, *but you
should read Question d as it gives you hints to solve Question e*). You must
calculate results by hand (though you may use any technology of your choice to
verify your answers).

11. Microeconomics requires you to complete a project.

The project consists of a question made up of several different parts. You will perform research on the required topics and provide your analysis. It will primarily encompass subject matter from the latter half of the course but will require understanding of the material from the first half.

Statistics is about more than calculations. It is about turning data into information and using this information to understand the population. A statistician will be asked to help solve real-world problems by designing a study, collecting data, analyzing the data, and writing up the results. As a final project, you will be asked to do something similar. Though the design and data collection will be done for you, you will be asked to analyze the data using the appropriate tests (ensuring the data are distributed normally) and write up the results, using statistical evidence to support your findings. Lastly, you will be asked to include recommendations, that is, apply the results to solve the real world problem.

In your paper, explain why you chose each statistical test, figure, or procedure.

**The Problem**

Due to financial hardship, the Nyke Shoe Company feels they only need to make one size of shoes, regardless of gender or height. They have collected data on gender, shoe size, and height and have asked you to tell them if they can change their business model to include only one size of shoes—regardless of height or gender of the wearer. In no more than 5–10 pages (including figures), explain your recommendations, using statistical evidence to support your findings. The data found are given in the following table.
