Question

A study from 2014 found that adults in the US spend an average of 11 hours per day watching, reading, listening to or simply interacting with media. Researchers at UCLA suspect students spend less time engaging media. They grouped UCLA students by class section, randomly selected 20 class sections, and administered a survey to each student in those randomly selected class sections. The following data represents the mean time (in hours) per day spent engaging media for each of the randomly selected classes:

 9.5 11.5 6 7.5 8 9.5 10.5 11 12 8.2 5 9.5 8.2 9.3 10.8 11 13 8.6 9.5 10.5

What variable is the "mean time (in hours) per day spent engaging media"?

What is the type of sampling that was used?

Step 1

here the variable is mean time per day spent in engaging media. Here we can clearly see the variable is numeric. As it is number of hours spent in engaging m...
