Step 1

Question 2: Sample statistics of the two samples:

The given statistics for the two randomly selected samples regarding the data of Exam 1 scores of morning class and evening class students for Professor Smith are:

The number of students from the morning class is n1 = 190.

The number of students from the evening class is n2 = 169.

The average score in Exam 1 for the students from evening class is x2bar = 70.

The variance scores of Exam 1 for the students from evening class is s2^2 = 142.

Furthermore, it is given that each student from the morning class has scored 68 in Exam 1.

Mean: Mean is an important measure of center when the data is quantitative. Mean of a data set is the sum of the data set divided by the size.

The average score in Exam 1 for the students from morning class:

Step 2

Obtain the combined Exam 1 score average.

The average score in Exam 1 for the students from morning class is x1bar = 68 and the average score in Exam 1 for the students from evening class is x2bar = 70.

The combined Exam 1 score average is obtained as xbar = 68.942 from the calculation given below:

Step 3

Question 3A: Obtain the combined Exam 1 score median.

Median: The medianis the middle value in an ordered sequence of data. If there are no ties, half of the observations will be smaller than the median, and half of the observations will be larger than the median.

In case of discrete data, if the sample size is an odd number then the middle observation of the ordered data is the median and if the sample size is even number then the average of middle two observations of the ord...
