A sample of 10 people ingested a new formulation of a new drug. Six hours later, the concentrations in their bloodstreams, in nanograms per mililiter were as follows: 2.3 1.4 1.8 2.1 1.0 4.1 1.8 2.9 2.5 and 2.7.

Construct a dot plot for this sample. Is it reasonable to treat the sample as coming from an approximately normal population? Explain.

Step 1

Dot plot:

It is a variation in bar chart in which dots are used instead of bars to represent the frequencies. Each dot represents a value.

Here, the concentration in blood streams is counted for a random sample of 10 people. The x-axis represents the concentrations. The Dot plot is given below:

Step 2

A careful inspection of dot plot reveals that the distribution of values is approximately normal. Therefore,...
