Stats: Midterm Notes Individuals: Objects described by a set of data. People, animals, or things. Variables:Any characteristics of an individual. Can take different values for different individuals. Race, etc. Categorical variable: places an individual into one of several groups or categories. Ex. Gender. Quantitative variable: Takes numerical values for which arithmetic operations such as adding or averaging make sense. Age, height, salary, etc. Quartiles: Q0 = minimum Q1 = ﬁrst quartile = median of the bottom 50% of the data Q2 = median Q3 = 3rd quartile = median of the top 50% of the data Q4 = maximum Outlier equation: - Find IQR: Interquartile Range: Q3 - Q1 - Interval equation: (Q1 - 1.5 * IQR, Q3 + 1.5 * IQR) Anything outside of those numbers are the outliers Range = maximum - minimum μ = population mean σ = standard deviation N(μ, σ) Empirical rule (68-95-99.7) About 68% of the data will fall within 1 standard deviation from the mean (μ - σ, μ + σ) About 95% of the data will fall within 2 standard deviations from the mean (μ - σ*2, μ + σ*2) About 99.7% of the data will fall within 3 standard deviations from the mean (μ - σ*3, μ + σ*3) Reminder: Everything in the table A chart is the area to the left: z< a number If something is z > a number, you must ﬁnd the right by subtracting 1 - that number from the chart In between proportions: - Find Z score for both numbers that you must ﬁnd the in between values of: Z = X - μ / σ - Find on table A the two values - Subtract the two values - The resulting number is the answer Ex. Find in between 85 and 125 Mean = 100 SD = 15 Above number proportion: Ex: What proportion is above 130? Mean: 100 SD: 15 Find r (correlation) (will always be between -1 and 1) by calculator STAT; Edit; enter; input the numbers; STAT; calc; down to LinReg (Ax+B); make sure X list is L1 and Y is L2; calculate; Not r2, but r. Sample Variance: (number - mean <plus each number - mean>, squared/ how many numbers there are, minus one) Ex: Find Sx and Sy: Exact same thing as sample variance equation, but square root the answer. Least square regression line: y^hat = mx+b Slope = m = r*Sy/ Sx Y intercept = b = mean of Y - slope, times mean of X Residual: Y - Y^hat
