Indicate whether the given statement could apply to a data set consisting of 1,000 values that are all dfferent.
a. The 29th percentile is greater than the 30th percentile. yes or no
b. The median is greater than the first quartile. yes or no
c. The third quartile is greater than the first quartile. yes or no
d. The mean is equal to the median. yes or no
The range is 0. yes or no
What does the first data have to do with the statements that follow?
The first three statements (a, b, c) apply to any distribution.
First quartile = 25th percentile
Median = second quartile = 50th percentile
Third quartile = 75th percentile
d would depend upon whether there were any gaps in the score values, the size of the gaps and where these gaps were.
The range = highest score - lowest score.
I hope this helps you to find your answers.
By the way, the above would be abetter title for your subject.
