ANSWER: Which of the following is most likely a population as opposed to a sample? respondents to a newspaper survey the first 5 students completing an assignment every third person to arrive at the bank registered voters in a county ANSWER: Which of the following is most likely a parameter as opposed to a statistic? the average score of the first five students completing an assignment the proportion of females registered to vote in a county the average height of people randomly selected from a database the proportion of trucks stopped yesterday that were cited for bad brakes ANSWER: Which of the following is not an element of descriptive statistical problems? an inference made about the population based on the sample the population or sample of interest tables, graphs, or numerical summary tools identification of patterns in the data ANSWER: A study is under way in Yosemite National Forest to determine the adult height of American pine trees. Specifically, the study is attempting to determine what factors aid a tree in reaching heights greater than 60 feet tall. It is estimated that the forest contains 25,000 adult American pines. The study involves collecting heights from 250 randomly selected adult American pine trees and analyzing the results.
