    Average,Chebyshev’s theorem,skewness

    please solve following quesitons

    Q#1The average IQ of 10 students in a mathematics course is 114.If 9 of the students have IQ’s of 101, 125, 118, 128, 106, 115, 99,118 and 109. What must be the other IQ? Feeling


    Q#2
    The grade-point averages of 20 college seniors selected at random from the graduating class are as follows:
    3.2,1.9,2.7,2.4,2.8,2.9,3.8,3.0,2.5,3.3,1.8,2.5,3. 7,2.8,2.0,3.2,2.3,2.1,2.5,1.9
    Calculate the percentage of grade point averages falling in the intervals X_+2S and_+3S . Do these results agree with Chebyshev’s theorem?



    Q3

    Calculate skewness from the following distribution by

    a.the Bowley’s formula
    b.the Pearsonian method
    data
    Groups: 35-39,40-44,45-49,50-54,55-59,60-64,65-69.
    Frequency: 13,15,17,28,12,10,5 respectively.


    Groups
    frequency
    35-39
    40-44
    45-49
    50-54
    55-59

    \frac{101 + 125 + 118 +128 +106 + 115+ 99 + 118 + 109+x}{10}=114

    1019+x=1140

    x=121 IQ

    Calculate the mean and standard deviation, In both cases all but one
    the data points fall in the intervals, thus the proportion out side the
    interval is 1/21.

    Chebyshev’s inequality tells us that the proportion out side the two intervals
    should be less than 1/2^2=1/4 and 1/3^3=1/9 respectivly, so Chebyshev's
    inequality is satisfied.
