a. Construct a dotplot using the 15 observations on number
of violent crimes reported. Which schools stand out from
the rest?
b. One of the Florida schools only has 793 students, and
a few of the schools are quite a bit larger than the rest.
Because of this, it might make more sense to consider a
crime rate by calculating the number of violent crimes
reported per 1000 students. For example, for Florida
A&M University the violent crime rate would be
10
(1000) = (0.000931)(1000) = 0.931
10,743
Calculate the violent crime rate for the other 14 schools.
Use these values to construct a second dotplot. Do the
same schools stand out as unusual in this dotplot?
c. Based on your answers from Parts (a) and (b), comment
