  • Card 8 / 15:
    Often, cruise ships conduct all on-board transactions, with the exception of gambling, on a cashless basis. At the end of the cruise, guests pay one bill that covers all onboard transactions. Suppose that 60 single travelers and 70 couples were surveyed as to their on-board bills for a seven-day cruise from Los Angeles to the Mexican Riviera. Following is a summary of the bills for each group.

    Fill in the relative frequency for each group.Construct a histogram for the singles group. Scale the x -axis by $50 widths. Use relative frequency on the y -axis.Construct a histogram for the couples group. Scale the x -axis by $50 widths. Use relative frequency on the y -axis.Compare the two graphs: List two similarities between the graphs. List two differences between the graphs. Overall, are the graphs more similar or different?Construct a new graph for the couples by hand. Since each couple is paying for two individuals, instead of scaling the x -axis by $50, scale it by $100. Use relative frequency on the y -axis.Compare the graph for the singles with the new graph for the couples: List two similarities between the graphs. Overall, are the graphs more similar or different?How did scaling the couples graph differently change the way you compared it to the singles graph?Based on the graphs, do you think that individuals spend the same amount, more or less, as singles as they do person by person as a couple? Explain why in one or two complete sentences.

how x minus x bar is equal to zero
Kashif Reply
When the mean (X bar) of the sample and the datapoint-in-context (X) from the same sample are the same, then it (X minus X bar) is equal to 0
e.g. mean of. sample is 3 and one of the datapoints in that sample is also 3

please guys what is the formulas use in calculated statistics please iam new here
Yunisa Reply
Dear Yunisa there are different formulas used in statistics depending on wnat you want to measure. It would be helpful if you can be more specific
Which of these measures are used to analyze the central tendency of data?
shubham Reply
mean median mode quartiles
There are three main measures of central tendency: the mode, the median and the mean. Each of these measures describes a different indication of the typical or central value in the distribution. ... The mode is the most commonly occurring value in a distribution.
hw about the mean and median
While mean is the sum of the total distribution devided by the number of values in the distribution or data set.
And median is the measure used to determine or analyze the central tendancy of the distribution.
oooooo thanks
what is the difference between stratified sample and cluster sample ?
@Sona Gagre : follow this link for detailed answer to your question ***analyticsvidhya.com/blog/2019/09/data-scientists-guide-8-types-of-sampling-techniques/
ok...I will look into it..thanx
both mean and median are all measures of central tendency however mean indicate the average of set of quantitative data and it is used when data is normal, median indicate position thus the middle of quantitative data when arranged in ascending order and it is used when in skewed distributions
in cluster there is multi set of population which exist naturally then you select subjects from each set to form ur sample while in stratified there is a single set of population then u create a sub unit called strata then u select from each stratum to form ur sample. remember that u need to deploy*
okay ...thank you
* either random sampling or systematic sampling in both techniques when doing d final selection of subjects from each group
