Step 1

(a). Obtain mean for the sample data.

The monthly incomes for the sample of size 12 are:

x: 4,450.95, 4,596.43, 4,455.27, 4,151.99, 4,283.65, 4,527.56, 3,946.55, 4,023.42, 4,366.86, 3,727.56, 44.0726 and 4,221.07.

Step 2

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 of the data set.

The mean of the sample data is:

Step 3

(b). Obtain the standard deviation for the sample data.

The mean of the sample data is 3,899.6.

Standard deviation:

The standard deviation indicates by how much each observation differs from a central point represented by the mean. In general, the variance increases with the increase in the distances between the indiv...
