Name: __________________________________________________________
1. This is a closed-book and closed-note exam. You are allowed to use the formula sheet
(provided by the instructor) and a calculator (scientific or graphing, prepared by student). No
other electronic devices or aiding tools are permitted.
2. Independent works are required and respected. Any suspicious behavior related to cheating
during the exam will be inspected. Cheating in the exam will result in an automatic zero score of
the exam and an instructor note to your affiliated department and college. Further investigation
and punishment will be handled by the University.
3. The exam is 1 hour 50 minutes. During the exam, a web clock will be projected on the screen
so you can check the time.
Correct answer alone without reasoning will not receive full credit. Partial credit will be given to
steps showing the right reasoning.
5. Write your solutions in the provided blank space below each question. If extra space is
needed, please request extra paper from the instructor during the exam.
True/False (4 points each)
1. A qualitative variable assumes meaningful numerical values.
2. All mathematical operations can be performed on ratio-scaled data.
3. A histogram is a series of rectangles where the width and height of each rectangle represent
the frequency (or relative frequency) and the width of the respective class.
4. The geometric mean is a multiplicative average of a data set used to measure values over a
period of time.
5. The variance and standard deviation are the most widely used measures of central location.
