Over the first five years of owning her car, Gina drove about 12,700 miles the 1st year, 15,478 miles the 2nd year, 12,675 the 3rd year, 11,850 the 4th year, and 13,075 the 5th year. which one will best predict how many miles Gina will drive the 6th
a) mean = 12,700; median = 13,156; no mode; the mean is the best choice because it is representative of the entire data set.
b) mean = 13,156; median = 12,700; mode = 3,628; the median is the best choice because it is not skewed by the high outlier.
c) mean = 13,156; median = 12,700; no mode; the mean is the best choice because it is representative of the entire data set.
d) mean = 13,156; median = 12,700; no mode; the median is the best choice because it is not skewed by the high outlier.

a) 3.1
b) 0.2
c) 5.1
d) 6.9

b) minimum 50; first quartile 65; median 75; third quartile 157.5; maximum 180
c) minimum 50; first quartile 70; median 105; third quartile 157.5; maximum 180
d) minimum 50; first quartile 65; median 75; third quartile 135; maximum 180

The advertised rents for five apartments were \$650, \$650, \$740, \$1650, and \$820. Which value best describes the monthly rents? Explain. mean = \$902, median = \$740, mode = \$650
a) The median best describes the rents because most of the rents were near \$740.
b) The mode best describes the rents because \$650 was the rent seen most often.
c) The mean best describes the rents because \$902 is the average rent.
d) none of the above

a) sample mean
b) sample size
c) population mean
