Answers that come straight from programs or software packages will not be accepted.;Record your answers and work on the separate answer sheet provided.;This exam has 300 total points.;You must include the Honor Pledge on the title page of your submitted final exam. Exams submitted without the Honor Pledge will not be accepted.;1. True or False. Justify for full credit. (25 pts);(a) If there is no linear correlation between two variables, then these two variables are not related in any way.;STAT200: Introduction to Statistics Final Examination, Fall 2014 OL4 / US2 Page 2 of 6;(b) If the variance from a data set is zero, then all the observations in this data set are identical.;(c) P (A and A) = 1, where A is the complement of A.;(d) In a hypothesis testing, if the P-value is less than the significance level?, we reject the null hypothesis.;(e) The volume of milk in a jug of milk is 128 oz. The value 128 is from a discrete data set.;Refer to the following frequency distribution for Questions 2, 3, 4, and 5. Show all work. Just the answer, without supporting work, will receive no credit.;The frequency distribution below shows the distribution for checkout time (in minutes) in UMUC MiniMart between 3:00 and 4:00 PM on a Friday afternoon.;Checkout Time (in minutes);Frequency;1.0 - 1.9;2;2.0 - 2.9;12;3.0 - 3.9;2;4.0 - 4.9;4;2.;What percentage of the checkout times was less than 3 minutes?;(5 pts);3.;In what class interval must the median lie? Explain your answer.;(5 pts);4.;Calculate the mean of this frequency distribution.;(5 pts);5. Calculate the standard deviation of this frequency distribution.

(Round the answer to two decimal places);(10 pts);7.;Find the coefficient of variation.;(5 pts);8. Are any of these study times considered unusual based on the Range Rule of Thumb?;Show work and explain. (5 pts);Refer to the following information for Questions 9, 10 and 11. Show all work. Just the answer, without supporting work, will receive no credit.;Consider selecting one card at a time from a 52-card deck. Let event A be the first card is an ace, and event B be the second card is an ace. (Note: There are 4 aces in a deck of cards);STAT200: Introduction to Statistics Final Examination, Fall 2014 OL4 / US2 Page 3 of 6;9. If the card selection is without replacement, what is the probability that the first card is an ace and;the second card is also an ace? (Express the answer in simplest fraction form) (10 pts);10. If the card selection is with replacement, what is the probability that the first card is an ace and;the second card is also an ace? (Express the answer in simplest fraction form);(10 pts);11.;Are A and B independent when the selection is with replacement? Why or why not?;(5 pts);Refer to the following information for Questions 12 and 13. Show all work. Just the answer, without supporting work, will receive no credit.;There are 1000 juniors in a college. Among the 1000 juniors, 200 students are taking STAT200, and 100 students are taking PSYC300. There are 50 students taking both courses.;12. What is the probability that a randomly selected junior is taking at least one of these two;courses? (10 pts);13. What is the probability that a randomly selected junior is taking PSYC300, given that;he/she is taking STAT200? (10 pts);14. UMUC Stat Club must appoint a president, a vice president, and a treasurer. There are 10;qualified candidates. How many different ways can the officers be appointed? (5 pts);15. Mimi has seven books from the Statistics is Fun series. She plans on bringing three of the seven;books with her in a road trip. How many different ways can the three books be selected?
