# The stem in a stem-leaf diagram

The trunk in the trunk diagram gives the right digit of the number you want and the leaf gives the right digit of the number you want. To achieve the appropriate value, the leaf unit must be multiplied by each leaf value. In our example, the lowest value is given by the least value of stem and leaf, which are 5 and 2. So, the smallest value is 5(2 × 0.1) = 5.2. Proceeding similar way, the largest number may be found from the largest (lowermost) value of stem and the largest value of the leaf. This gives 8 and 9 and the largest number becomes 8(9 × 0.1) = 8.9.

Problem 6

We have 28 numbers (as can be found from the leaf values). So, each quartile will be composed of 7 values. The first quartile be given by first 7 values constructed from the stem and leaf.

The average of 7th and 8th values will give the first quartile value. Thus, the average of 6.1 and 6.4 is 6.25, which is the required answer.

Problem 9

Sample mean may be found by adding all numbers and then dividing the by the number of terms. Here,

21 + 38 + 35 + 31 + 28 + 22 + 25 + 32 + 24 + 35 + 27+ 30 = 348

Total number of terms = 12

Average = 348/12 = 29.0

Problem 10

Sample median may be found by arranging the terms in ascending order and finding the value of the middle term.

21, 22, 24, 25, 27, 28, 30, 31, 32, 35, 35, 38

Here, total number of terms is 12; middle terms are 6th and 7th terms: 28 and 30. The average of the middle terms = (28+30)/2 = 58/2 = 29.0

Problem 11

Sample standard deviation may be found by

Subtracting the average value of the sample from each term

Taking the sum of squares of all differences,

Dividing the sum by the number of terms less one (here, 12-1 =11)

Then taking square root of the result.

Standard Deviation = √(((21–29)^2+(22–29)^2+(24–29)^2+(25–29)^2+(27–29)^2+(28–29)^2+(30–29)^2+(31–29)^2+(32–29)^2+(35–29)^2+(35–29)^2+(38–29)^2)/11)

= 5.44

Problem 12

Coefficient of variation is found by taking percentage of the quotient of standard deviation by mean.

Coefficient of variation = (Standard Deviation )/(Mean ) × 100%

= 5.44/29 × 100%

= 18.8%

Problem 16

z-score = (x–μ)/σ; here, mean, μ = 29 and standard deviation, σ = 5.44

= (38–29)/5.44

= 1.65

Problem 20

Slope, b1 = (n∑▒tY–(∑▒〖Y)(∑▒〖t)〗〗)/(n∑▒t^2 –(∑▒〖t)〗^2 )

Here, ∑▒t = 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +5 = 15

∑▒t^2 = 12 +22 +32 +42 +52 = 1 +4 +9 +16 +25 = 55

= (5×1104.2–335.7×15)/(5×55 –〖15〗^2 ) = 9.71

Problem 21

Intercept, b0 = (∑▒Y)/n – b1 (∑▒t)/n

= (1104.2)/5 – 9.71×15/5

= 38.01

Problem 22

The trend equation, Y’ = b0 + b1t

= 38.01 + 9.71t

For 2006, t = 6; the forecasted number of visitor can be found by putting t = 6 in the trend equation.

Y’ = 38.01 + 9.71 × 6 = 96.03

Problem 6

The stem in a stem-leaf diagram gives the rightmost digit of the desired number and the leaf will give the leftmost digit of the desired number. The leaf unit must be multiplied with each leaf value to get the required value.

In our example, the lowest value is given by the least value of stem and leaf, which are 2 and 2. So, the smallest value is 2(2 × 10) = 220. Total number of leaves before 4 in the stem row 4 are 17.

Problem 10

Sample mean may be found by adding all numbers and then dividing the by the number of terms. Here,

39 + 13 + 20 + 5 + 29 + 3 + 7 + 11 + 8 + 9 + 35 + 17 + 5 + 40 + 44 = 285

Total number of terms = 15

Average = 285/15 = 19.0

Problem 11

Sample median may be found by arranging the terms in ascending order and finding the value of the middle term.

3, 5, 5, 7, 8, 9, 11, 13, 17, 20, 29, 35, 39, 40, 44

The middle term of 15 terms is the 8th term, which is 13.

Problem 22

Running total is calculated by adding all quarter values corresponding to each year.

The first running total corresponds to first year 2003:

175 + 167 + 140 + 135 = 617

The first running total corresponds to first year 2004:

180 + 175 + 150 + 142 = 647
