Problem 34

Wisconsin ACT math II This plot shows the mean ACT scores for Wisconsin schools with the Milwaukee schools removed. The vertical lines show the mean, mean - 1s, and mean + 1s. a) Describe the shape of the distribution. b) Does a normal model seem appropriate for this distribution? c) 68.9% of the school average scores are between the two outer lines. Does that support or refute your answer to part b? d) Below, a normal model with mean 21.910 and standard deviation 1.539 is drawn over the histogram. Explain how this demonstrates George Boxs statement, All models are wrongbut some are useful.
