Salmon A specialty food company sells whole King Salmon to various customers. The mean weight of these salmon is 35 pounds with a standard deviation of 2 pounds. The company ships them to restaurants in boxes of 4 salmon, to grocery stores in cartons of 16 salmon, and to discount outlet stores in pallets of 100 salmon. To forecast costs, the shipping department needs to estimate the standard deviation of the mean weight of the salmon in each type of shipment a) Find the standard deviations of the mean weight of the salmon in each type of shipment. b) The distribution of the salmon weights turns out to be skewed to the high end. Would the distribution of shipping weights be better characterized by a Normal model for the boxes or pallets? Explain.
1.1Statistics EX: (look at notebook) Noise (the spread of the dots): normal or expected variability Signal: fertilizer 1.2Types of Evidence I. Types of Evidence a. Anecdotal: something that sparks a study of investigation. A single instinct that can lead. i. EX: (A plane trip) A mom stops the babies from crying by giving it a juice box b. Observational: when researcher systematically collects data as an observer. NO manipulation. c. Experimental: researchers manipulate conditions – usually treatments, controls, randomness d. Placebo group: drug trials II. Concerns a. EX: flyin
