Description
Tutorial 1 1. In a particular class of 39 students the number of hours of sleep before a final exam were (ordered from smallest to largest) : 2.3 2.6 2.8 2.8 3.1 3.4 3.5 3.7 3.9 4.1 4.2 4.4 4.4 4.8 4.9 5.1 5.1 5.3 5.3 5.5 5.6 5.6 5.6 5.8 5.8 5.9 5.9 6.2 6.5 6.6 6.9 7.3 7.6 7.7 8.1 8.6 9.2 9.5 10.1 Let y ie the number of hours of sleep for the ith student i  1,…,39.

(c) A relative frequency histogram of the data is given below along with the values of the sample skewness and kurtosis. Comment on whether you think a Gaussian model is a good fit to the data.
