STAB22 Term Test

White version

Olga Chilina Srishta Chopra

February 6, 2014

For this examination, you are allowed one handwritten letter-sized (8.5 ×11 inches) sheet of notes

(both sides) prepared by you, a non-programmable, non-communicating calculator, and writing

implements.

This question paper has 18 numbered pages of questions, with 2 blank pages and statistical tables

at the back. Before you start, check to see that you have all the pages. You should also have a

Scantron sheet on which to enter your answers. If any of this is missing, speak to an invigilator.

This examination is multiple choice. Each question has equal weight, and there is no penalty for

guessing. To ensure that you receive credit for your work on the exam, ﬁll in the bubbles on the

Scantron sheet for your correct student number (under “Identiﬁcation”), your last name, and as

much of your ﬁrst name as ﬁts. If you do not ﬁll in the bubbles for your name and student number,

you risk getting a zero for the exam.

Mark in each case the best answer out of the alternatives given (which means the numerically

closest answer if the answer is a number and the answer you obtained is not given.)

If you need paper for rough work, use the blank sheets at the back of this question paper. You

may detach these pages or the tables.

Before you begin, two more things:

•Check that the colour printed on your Scantron sheet matches the colour of your question

paper. If it does not, get a new Scantron from an invigilator.

•Complete the signature sheet, but sign it only when the invigilator collects it. The signature

sheet shows that you were present at the exam.

At the end of the exam, you must hand in your Scantron sheet (or you will receive a mark of zero

for the examination). You will be graded only on what appears on the Scantron sheet. You are

responsible for making sure that an invigilator receives your Scantron. You may take away the

question paper after the exam, but whether you do or not, anything written on the question paper

will not be considered in your grade.

The University of Toronto’s Code of Behaviour on Academic Matters applies to all University of

1. The following histogram represents the distribution of acceptance rates (percent accepted) among 25

business schools in 1997. In each class interval, the left endpoint is included but not the right. Which

interval contains fewer than half of all the observations?

A. none of the other alternatives

B. (0%, 30%)

C. (20%, 35%)

D. (25%, 40%)

E. (30%, 50%)

Solution: There are 1 + 3 + 5 + 3 = 12 observations between 0 and 30, which is just less than half

of the 25 observations. All the other actual alternatives contain 13 observations, which is more than

half.

2. On a STAB22 test, the middle 95% of students score between 46 and 82. The scores have a normal

distribution. Calculate the mean score and the standard deviation of the scores. You may wish to use

the 68-95-99.7 rule. In the choices below, the mean is given ﬁrst in each case, and then the standard

deviation.

A. 64, 18

B. 64, 32

C. 18, 32

D. 18, 23

E. 64, 9

Solution: The diﬀerence between bottom and top is 82 −46 = 36. This is four times the standard

deviation, since the rule says to go up and down 2 SDs. So the SD is 9. The mean is in the middle

of the two values given, (82 + 46)/2 = 64.

3. The plot below was obtained for some data x:

Which one of the following statements is the best conclusion from the plot?

A. The data follow a distribution that is skewed to the right.

B. The data follow a distribution that is skewed to the left.

C. The data follow an approximately normal distribution.

D. The data have a non-linear relationship.

E. The line of best ﬁt is quite good.
