Week Two Quiz
1. IN A GALLUP POLL OF 1,038 ADULTS, 540 SAID THAT SECOND-HAND SMOKE IS VERY HARMFUL. WHAT IS THE PERCENTAGE OF ADULTS WHO SAID SECOND-HAND SMOKE IS VERY HARMFUL?
Show your work:
Answer: 540/1038=0.5202312x100=52.023=52.02%= 52%
2. The first class in a relative frequency table is 50–59 and the corresponding relative frequency is 0.2. What does the 0.2 value indicate?
Answer: 0.2 is equal to 1/5 or 20%, 0.2 indicates 20% of the data values are in this particular interval.
3. When you add the values 3, 5, 8, 12, and 20 and then divide by the number of values, the result is 9.6. Which term best describes this value: average, mean, median, mode, or standard deviation?
Answer: 9.6 is the average of the numbers listed and is also the mean of this data.
4. Answer the next four questions using the following set of numbers. Show your work for all questions:
2.0, 3.7, 4.9, 5.0, 5.7, 6.7, 8.5, 9.0
What is the range of the above values? Range is the difference between the lowest value and the highest value.
The range of the listed numbers is 9.0-2.0=7.0.
What is the median of the above values? The median is calculated by adding together the two middle numbers and dividing by 2 (2 values). The numbers must be in ascending or descending order.
5.0+5.7=10.7/2=5.35=5.4 is the median of the numbers listed in this question.
What is the mean of the above values? To calculate the mean add all of the values in the data together and divide by the number of values.
2.0+3.7+4.9+5.0+5.7+6.7+8.5+9.0=45.5/8=5.6875= 5.7 is the mean of the numbers above.
What is the mode of the above values? The mode is the value that occurs most often. There is no mode for the values listed in this question because all of the values only appear one

371 Words | 2 PagesThe method used to convert the measurement in inches to a decimal was to take the recording of the number plus the fraction out of 8 and add it to the nearest tenth of the smallest division. For the Vernier Caliper, we recorded the reading by finding a mark on the sliding scale that lined up with any mark on the fixed scale. Then the lines that line up with the number on the fixed scale is recorded based on the intervals between two of the numbers. For the micrometer, the number of millimeters on the frame is first read. If the next mark is visible, we add 0.5 mm.

## Mass, Volume And Density

1696 Words | 7 PagesA balance was used to measure the mass (m). The mass was then divided by the volume to obtain the density (ρ) of the steel ball. This was done for all 5 measurements to obtain an average density (ρ av.). The average density was then subtracted from the density of each to obtain a mean deviation of density (|dpi|) which was then averaged. The average density was compared with the accepted average density (7.8*103 kg/m3) provided in the lab’s manual.

## Quadratic Equations Essay

475 Words | 2 PagesQuadratic Equations I am asked to complete the exercises in the “Projects” section on page 397 of Mathematics in Our World. I am to be concise in my reasoning. Please see below my work for Project One and Project Two. Project One: Equation (C): x² + 10x - 40 = 0 (a) Move the constant term to the right side of the equation. X² + 10x - 40 = 0 x² + 10x - 40 + 40 = 0 + 40 x² + 10x + 0 = 0 + 40 x² + 10x = 0 + 40 x² + 10x = 40 (b) Multiply each term in the equation by four times the coefficient of the x squared term.
