Population of a Subway Car Statistics Problem

2. The ages of a group of people in a subway car are: 5, 7, 12, 21, 29, 30, 33, 46, 52, and 83. Consider this to be your population. Find µ.

Then place each number (age) on a strip of paper, fold them twice, and place them in a hat or bowl. Randomly select 3 separate samples of 5 ages each (be sure to replace the chosen 5 before selecting the next sample). Find x-bar for each of the 3 samples. Discuss sampling error in the context of what you just did.

Solution Summary

This solution answers statistics questions such as finding µ, x-bar and discussing sampling error.
