Below is a sample of share prices (in dollars) for a particular
stock, selected at random over several years:
240 270 270 270 254 236 259 268 264
242 235 232 242 232 243 259 242 255
Find the mean, median, variance, and standard deviation for
this sample.
Mean =
Median =
Variance =
Standard Deviation =

From the stem and leaf plot below, determine the mean, median
and mode(s) of the data. Record answers that are not integers to
two decimal places. Since no key is provided, assume the stem
separates the ones place from the tens place as usual.
NOTES: (1) If there is more than one mode, list all of them,
separated by commas.
(2) If there is no mode, write ’None’.

11. The distribution of home prices in Tucson is skewed
to the left. The median price is $190,000. Specify the general
location of the mean.
• A. higher than $190,000
• B. lower than $190,000
• C. equal to $190,000
• D. it may fall anywhere to $190,000
12. Calculate the mean and median of the following grades
on a math test:

14. A random sample of 20 U.S. weddings yielded the
following data on wedding costs in dollars:
9726, 33730, 27015, 19773, 34121, 7771, 19450, 8043,
22034, 26250,

32455, 33152
1. Use the sample data to obtain an estimate for the population
mean wedding cost, μ, of all recent U.S. weddings. Note:
The sum of the data is 410624.
x¯ =
2. Is your estimate in part 1 likely equal to μ exactly (yes or
no )?

The length (in pages) of math research projects is given below.
Using this information, calculate the mean and the standard
deviation regarding the data set as a sample.
Above are three different data sets. Without calculating anything,
decide which set A, B, or C has the smaller standard
deviation. Just enter the letter of the data set as your answer.
