Card 6 / 11:
Ornithologists, scientists who study birds, tag sparrow hawks in 13 different colonies to study their population. They gather data for the percent of new sparrow hawks in each colony and the percent of those that have returned from migration.
Enter the data into your calculator and make a scatter plot.Use your calculator’s regression function to find the equation of the leastsquares regression line. Add this to your scatter plot from part a.Explain in words what the slope and yintercept of the regression line tell us.How well does the regression line fit the data? Explain your response.Which point has the largest residual? Explain what the residual means in context. Is this point an outlier? An influential point? Explain.An ecologist wants to predict how many birds will join another colony of sparrow hawks to which 70% of the adults from the previous year have returned. What is the prediction?

A Dictionary of Computing. measures of location Quantities that represent the average or typical value of a random variable (compare measures of variation). They are either properties of a probability distribution or computed statistics of a sample. Three important measures are the mean, median, and mode.

maybe .... mathematics is the science of simplification and statistics is the interpretation of such values and its implications.

outlier is an observation point that is distant from other observations.

what is its effect on mode?
Usama
Outlier have little effect on the mode of a given set of data.

How can you identify a possible outlier(s) in a data set.
Daniel
The best visualisation method to identify the outlier is box and wisker method or boxplot diagram. The points which are located outside the max edge of wisker(both side) are considered as outlier.
Akash
@Daniel Adunkwah  Usually you can identify an outlier visually. They lie outside the observed pattern of the other data points, thus they're called outliers.

dies outcome is 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
nothing come outside of it. it is an example of discrete variable

How to answer quantitative data
what's up here ... am new here
Kachalla
sorry question a bit unclear...do you mean how do you analyze quantitative data? If yes, it depends on the specific question(s) you set in the beginning as well as on the data you collected. So the method of data analysis will be dependent on the data collecter and questions asked.
Bheka
how to solve for degree of freedom
saliou
Quantitative data is the data in numeric form. For eg: Income of persons asked is 10,000. This data is quantitative data on the other hand data collected for either make or female is qualitative data.
Rohan
Degree of freedom is the unconditionality. For example if you have total number of observations n, and you have to calculate variance, obviously you will need mean for that. Here mean is a condition, without which you cannot calculate variance. Therefore degree of freedom for variance will be n1.
Rohan
data that is best presented in categories like haircolor, food taste (good, bad, fair, terrible) constitutes qualitative data
Bheka
vegetation types (grasslands, forests etc) qualitative data
Bheka
I don't understand how you solved it can you teach me
