b. Find the standard deviation using the rule of thumb for each of the data sets.

c. Compare the two sets and describe what you discover.

The following data sets shows the ages of the first seven presidents (President Washington through President Jackson) and the seven most recent presidents including President Obama. Age is given at time of inauguration.

  1. What type of distribution is each set of scores? Skewed? Bimodal? Normal? How do the measures of central tendency compare? How about variability?

    Does that help?
