Math 203 Assignment #1 2.10 (a) Qualitative data is measured because the data given is the names of the manufacturers, not numbers on a naturally occurring scale. (b) Barplot of PINpad Manufacturers 0.35 0.30 0.25 0.20 Frequencies 0.10 0.05 0.00 Bitel Omron Urmet CyberNet Intelligent Pax Tech.

Intelligent Fujian LandiKwangWoo Toshiba TEC SZZT Electronics ProvencoCadmus Glintt (ParaRede) SZZT Electronics In this graph we see that Fujian Landi made the most PINpad shipments, followed by the manufacturer, SZZT Electronics. A Pareto diagram was made because it allows the reader to see the frequencies more easily since it is arranged in decreasing order. Also the assignment said to make a Pareto graph. 2.42 Histogram of 2005 SAT scores Histogram of 2009 SAT scores (a) 8 8 6 6 4 4 Frequency Frequency 2 2 0 0 950 1000 1050 1100 1150 1200 900 950 1000 1050 1100 1150 1200 1250 SAT scores SAT scores A histogram makes the comparison of data easier when they are placed side by side. It allows us to look at the distribution of one variable. We can look at the frequencies of the scores and compare them between the two years. The 2005 distribution looks right-skewed. The 2009 distribution also looks right-skewed, and it looks slightly bimodal. In comparison, the 2009 SAT scores are slightly lower than the 2005 SAT scores, and it is slightly more variable than the 2005 scores. However the differences are small and insignificant. Histogram of the Change in SAT scores from 2005 to 2009 (b) 15 10 Frequency 5 0 -80 -60 -40 -20 0 20 40 Difference in SAT Scores (c) Since there are negative frequencies in the graph of part (b), it means that the SAT scores for many states in 2009 were lower than in 2005. SAT scores for many states were lowered from a 0-20 frequency ra
