Part I: Basic statistics, frequencies, histogram, zscores, normal distribution.
The pedometer data in the table was gathered by the instructor between 20 January and 02 February 2008
 __________ What level of measurement is the data?
 __________ Find the sample size n for the data.
 __________ Find the minimum.
 __________ Find the maximum.
 __________ Find the range.
 __________ Find the median.
 __________ Find the mode.
 __________ Find the sample mean x.
 __________ Find the sample standard deviation sx.
 __________ Find the sample coefficient of variation CV.
 __________ If this data were to be divided into five bins, what would be the width of a single bin?
 Determine the frequency and calculate the relative frequency using five bins. Record your results in the table provided.
Temperature bins (x)  Frequency (f)  Rel. Freq. p(x)

 Sketch a histogram chart of the data anywhere it fits, labeling your horizontal axis and vertical axis as appropriate.
 ____________________ What is the shape of the distribution?
 p(x < 4040) = ____________________ What is the probability I will walk 4040 steps or less per day?
 p(x > 9960) = ____________________ The goal of the 10000 step program is to walk 10000 steps per day. What is the probability that I will walk greater than 9960 steps or more per day?
 ____________________ Use the sample mean x and standard deviation sx calculated above to determine the zscore for a day with 10000 steps
 ____________________ Is the zscore for a 10000 step day an ordinary or unusual zscore?

Pohnpei public health has been handing out pedometers provided by the Pacific Diabetes Education Program through a grant from Imi Hale. The FSM Department of Health has recently received pedometers from WHO. The WHO pedometers use a different mechanism and algorithm than the Imi Hale pedometers. Trials in which both pedometers were worn at the same time provided the data in the accompanying table.
 __________ Does the relationship appear to be linear, nonlinear, or random?
 __________ Calculate the slope of the linear regression line for the data.
 __________ Calculate the yintercept of the linear regression for the data.
 __________ Is the correlation positive, negative, or neutral?
 __________ Determine the correlation coefficient r.
 __________ What is the strength of the correlation?
 __________ Determine the coefficient of determination r² .
 __________ If the Imi Hale pedometer has recorded 450 steps, what is the predicted WHO pedometer step count?
 __________ If the WHO pedometer has recorded 250 steps, what is the predicted Imi Hale pedometer step count?
