PRE-LAB 2: Chapter 4
1. Make up a set of data for which the mean is greater than the median. (4.4)
2. A group of 20 rats running a straight alley maze required the following number of
trials to perform a predetermined criterion. The frequency distribution follows.
Trials to reach criterion: 18 19 20 21 22 23 24
Number of rats: 3 4 3 4 3 2 1
Calculate the mean, median and mode number of trials to criterion for this group.
(Modified from 4.7)
Mode: 19 and 21
3. Create a sample of ten numbers that has a mean of 8.6. How did you accomplish this?
(The answer will help you later to understand the concept of degrees of freedom.)
therefore the ten numbers could be: 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+41 = 86
4. Why is the mode (but not the mean and median) an acceptable measure for nominal
