According to these data, the mean time students spent on the exam was 94.1 minutes, and the standard deviation was 24.23 minutes. Suppose the exam proctor realized after compiling these data that he had used the wrong start time in his calculation, so that each value for time spent on exam needs to be reduced by 15 minutes. He also wants to express the times in hours, rather than minutes. Find the mean and standard deviation of the transformed data.

  1. Mean = (94.1-15)/60

    Since every score is reduced by the same amount, the SD remains the same.

    SD = 24.23/60
