Which is an example of a variable? A) Calculator brand B) Number of textbooks purchased C) Distance to the university D) All of the above 6. There are two methods commonly used in data collection. They are: A) Surveys and questionnaires B) Social media and the internet C) Experiments and Observational studies. D) None of the above 7. What type of graph is a bar graph with the bars arranged from the most numerous category to the least numerous category? A) pie chart B) pareto diagram C) spider chart D) All of the above 8. The definition of a population is: A) a subset of the total of individuals or objects which information is desired. B) a subset of a sample of individuals or objects which information is desired. C) an entire collection of individuals or objects which information is desired. D) a partial collection of individuals or objects which information is desired. 9. In some studies, attention focuses on a single variable. Other studies will focus on two variables. When a study focuses on two characteristics, such as age and weight, the data set will consist of pairs of numbers, such as (68, 192). The age is 68 and the weight is 192. When a study focuses on two characteristics it is called a: A) bivariate data set B) univariate data set C) trivariate data set D) quadvariate data set 10. The primary purpose of linear correlation is to measure the strength of a linear relationship between two variables. Scatter diagrams measure that relationship. A scatter diagram can reflect: A) no correlation B) positive correlation C) negative correlation D) All of the above 11.

The linear correlation coefficient, r, always has a value between: A) -1 and +1 B) 0 and +1 C) -10 and +10 D) None of the above 12. A probability of an event is: A) the relative frequency with which that event can be expected to occur. B) the number of times a variable has occurred. C) the number of trials in an event. D) None of the above. 13. A random variable assumes a unique numerical value for each of the outcomes in a sample space of a probability experiment. This is called the random variable value. Numerical random variables can be subdivided into two classifications. They are: A) samples and populations B) parameters and percentages C) discrete random variables and continuous random variables D) none of the above 14.
