Exercise #2 is described below. This exercise is due before class on Thu, Sep 5th. In-class time will be allocated, time permitting, to begin the assignment on Tue, Sep 3rd.
Please prepare your answers to the exercise questions using Microsoft Word or the equivalent and submit via email to [email protected] with the Word (.doc or .docx) file or a PDF version attached.
Apparently people are emailing lots of different document formats to Becky, making grading cumbersome. So, instead of emailing, please print your Excercise and turn it in at the beginning of class on Thursday (9/5). Sorry for any confusion.
- Complete Problem 2.1 on p. 22
- Complete Problems 2.7 and 2.9 on p. 28-29

Help for problem 2.1. I entered the data in Excel, created bins and made histograms. Hopefully this will help you understand the problem. You can use this data and the histograms for parts a and b. But, part c is up to you. Which is more useful – 5 or 10 bins? Why? Link to Excel file: Ex2_2-1
