Question #12649

Hampson and Walker also made measurements of the heats of sublimation of

rhodium and iridium. Do the following calculations for each of the two given sets of

data:

a Make a histogram.

b Make a stem-and-leaf plot.

с Make a boxplot.

d Plot the observations in the order of the experiment.

e Does that statistical model of independent and identically distributed

measurement errors seem reasonable?

f Find the mean, 10% and 20% trimmed means, and median and compare them.

g Find the standard error of the sample mean and a corresponding approximate

90% confidence interval.

h Find a confidence interval based on the median that has as close to 90% coverage

as possible.

i Use the bootstrap to approximate the sampling distributions of the 10% and 20%

trimmed means and their standard errors and compare.

j Use the bootstrap to approximate the sampling distribution of the median and its

standard error. Compare to the corresponding results for trimmed means above.

к Find approximate 90% confidence intervals based on the trimmed means and

compare to the intervals for the mean and median found previously.
