T or F 3. ________is a measure of dispersion of random variable values about the expected value. 4. Assume that it takes a college student an average of 5 minutes to find a parking spot in the main parking lot. Assume also that this time is normally distributed with a standard deviation of 2 minutes. What time is exceeded by approximately 75% of the college students when trying to find a parking spot in the main parking lot? 5. The __________ is the expected value of the regret for each decision. In the Monte Carlo process, values for a random variable are generated by __________ a probability distribution 6. Pseudorandom numbers exhibit __________ in order to be considered truly random. 7. Consider the following demand and forecast. Period Demand Forecast 1 7 10 2 12 15 3 18 20 4 22 If MAD = 2, what is the forecast for period 4? 8. The following data summarizes the historical demand for a product Month Actual Demand March 20 April 25 May 40 June 35 July 30 August 45 9. If the forecasted demand for June, July and August is 32, 38 and 42, respectively, what is MAPD? Write your answer in decimal form and not in percentages. For example, 15% should be written as 0.15. Use three significant digits after the decimal. 10. The following sales data are available for 2003-2008 : Year Sales Forecast 2003 7 9 2004 12 10 2005 14 15 2006 20 22 2007 16 18 2008 25 21 11.
