As mentioned earlier, the mid-term will have conceptual and quantitative multiple-choice questions. You need to read all 4 chapters and you need to be able to solve problems in all 4 chapters in order to do well in this test.

The following are for review and learning purposes only. I am not indicating that identical or similar problems will be in the test. As I have indicated many times, all the exams in this course will have multiple-choice questions and problems.

Suggestion: treat this review set as you would an actual test. Sit down with your one page of notes and your calculator, and give it a try. That way you will know what areas you still need to study.

a) Is the distribution of salaries for this group skewed? If so, how and why?
b) Which of these measures of central tendency would you use to describe these data? Why?

21) True or False: The median is the most frequently occurring value in a set of data.

22) True or False: A disadvantage of the mean as the measure of central tendency is that it is affected by extremely large or extremely small values in the data set.

23) True or False: The variance is the average of the squared deviations about the arithmetic mean for a set of numbers.
