Textbook Problem

**a**. When measuring height to the nearest inch, what are the real limits for a score of 68 inches?

**b.** When measuring height to the nearest half inch, what are the real limits for a score of 68 inches?

**(a)**

To determine

**To Find:** The real limits for a score of 68 inches when measuring height to the nearest inch.

Explanation

**Given info:**

The given score is 68 inches.

**Calculation:**

The concept of real limits applies to any measurement of a continuous variable, even when the score categories are not whole numbers.

The upper real limit is obtained by adding the 0.5 to the given score and the lower real limit is obtained by subtract the 0.5 to the given score.

The upper real limit is,

**(b)**

To determine

**To find:** The real limits for a score of 68 inches when measuring height to the nearest half inch.
