Answer: F. Parameter, because the data set of all 2000 students in a high school is a population.
Parameters is a variable or measure that is calculated from the entire population of data while a statistic is done from a sample of the data.
The question notes that the poll was done on <u>all 2,000</u> students in a high school. This means that the poll is a Parameter because it was done on the entire population of the high school.
*dot plot is shown in the attachment below
Mean = 6.3
Median = 6
Measures of centre, mean and median, can be calculated as follows:
First, bear in mind that each dot represents a value in the data set.
Mean is the sum of all values in the data set divided by the number of data set we have.
The sum can be calculated as follows:
0 (1) = 0
4 (3) = 12
5(8) = 40
6(3) = 18
7(1) = 7
8(5) = 40
9(2) = 18
10 (3) = 30
Sum = 0+12+40+18+7+40+18+30 = 165
No of data set = 26
Mean = 165/26 = 6.346 ≈ 6.3 (nearest tenth place)
==>Median: this is the middle value in the data set. Since the number of data set is even number (26) , the middle value lies between the 13th and 14th data points. The average of the 13th and 14th data points will give us the median value.
Thus, the 13th and 14th values are both 6.
Therefore, median = (6+6) ÷ 2 = 6
