Problem 1

(a) We need to calculate the mean and standard deviation of the 15 data.
Mean=(11+3+...-5+2)/18=1.89

Variance=[(11-1.89)2+(3-1.89)2+...+(-5-1.89)2+(2-1.89)2]/(18-1)=16.46

Standard deviation=sqrt(16.46)=4.06.

Hence, if a number is usual, it must be within 2 standard deviations about mean.
It is within the interval (1.89-2*4.06, 1.89+2*4.06)=(-6.23, 10.01).

Since 15 is not ...
