Question 13 of 20

0.0/ 1.0 Points

Accepted characters: numbers, decimal point markers (period

or comma), sign indicators (-), spaces (e.g., as thousands separator, 5 000),

“E” or “e” (used in scientific notation). NOTE: For

scientific notation, a period MUST be used as the decimal point marker.

Complex numbers should be in the form (a + bi) where

“a” and “b” need to have explicitly stated values.

For example: {1+1i} is valid whereas {1+i} is not. {0+9i} is

valid whereas {9i} is not.

The histogram below represents scores achieved by 250 job applicants

on a personality profile.

The histogram below represents scores achieved by 250 job

applicants on a personality profile.

Sixty percent of the job applicants scored below what

value? Place your answer in the blank.

Do not use any stray symbols. For example, 123 would be a legitimate answer.

legitimate entry. 1.90

A sample of 150 students at a State University was taken

after the final business statistics exam to ask them whether they went partying

the weekend before the final or spent the weekend studying, and whether they

did well or poorly on the final. The following table contains the result.

what percentage of the students in the population should we expect to spend the

weekend studying and do poorly on the final exam? Place your answer in the blank, rounded to 2

decimal places. Do not use a percentage sign (%). For example, 44.44 would be a
