Rebecca and Matt are 14 year old twins. Matt’s height is 2 standard deviations below the mean for 14 year old boys’ height. Rebecca’s height is 0.10 standard deviations above the mean for 14 year old girls’ height. Interpret this.
Matt is 2.1 inches shorter than Rebecca
Rebecca is very tall compared to other 14 year old girls.
Rebecca is taller than Matt.
Matt is shorter than the average 14 year old boy.

Six different brands of Italian salad dressing were randomly selected at a supermarket. The grams of fat per serving are 7, 7, 9, 6, 8, 5. Assume that the underlying distribution is normal. Calculate a 95% confidence interval for the population mean grams of fat per serving of Italian salad dressing sold in supermarkets.
CI:
$(5\text{.}\text{52},8\text{.}\text{48})$
Given: uniform, exponential, normal distributions. Match each to a statement below.
Economics is important because it helps people understand how a variety of factors work with and against each other to control how resources such as labor and capital get used, and how inflation, supply, demand, interest rates and other factors determine how much you pay for goods and services.
