1. The accompanying table provides seven years of departmental accident data for an industrial laundry.

The data have been analyzed chronologically, by day, and found to exhibit stable patterns of variation with respect to accidents per day. Number of Accidents Wed. Thurs. Fri. 9 8 13 21 27 33 11 9 9 21 19 20 62 63 75

Department Receiving/ Shipping Washroom Drying Ironing/ Folding Total

Mon. 12 30 10 22 74

Tues. 8 19 10 20 57

Total 50 130 49 102 331 (15 marks)

a) what is the probability that an accident will occur in the Washroom on Monday? b) what is the probability that an accident will occur in the Ironing/ Folding on Thursday? c) what is the probability that an accident will occur on Friday? d) what is the probability that an accident will occur in Receiving/ Shipping?

2. A consumer protection testing agency wants to study the life expectancy of a particular job lot of a new radial tire. Ten tires were randomly selected from the job lot. Achieved mileages before the minimum tread depth was reached (and the tires were declared worn out) were: 32,800, 41,700, 35,200, 39,000, 36,200, 35,600, 35,700, 45,200, 42,800, and 35,700. (In the class on Thursday morning on 3rd Nov 2011, we used 9 tires, but when you are at home, we add one more tire in for your extra practice, which is 35,600. Please calculate the 10 tires and see what answers of the following sub-questions change, but what remains same.) (15 marks) a) construct a frequency distribution and cumulative frequency distribution for this data; b) using the frequency distribution in part a), draw a histogram of the recorded mileages for the 10 new radial tires; c) is a run chart an appropriate display for these data? explain why or why not, and if so, construct a run chart. d) calculate the mean life expectancy for this sample of 10 tires; e) calculate the median life expectancy for this sample of 10 tires; f) calculate the mode life expectancy for this sample of 10 tires; g) calculate the standard deviation of the life expectancy for this sample of 10 tires; h) calculate the range for these data.

3. a machine shop manager wishes to study the time it takes an assembler to complete a given small subassembly. Measurements, in minutes, are made at 15 consecutive half-hour intervals. The time to complete the task are 12, 10, 18, 16, 4, 16, 11, 15, 15, 13, 19, 10, 15, 17, and 11. (15 marks) a) construct a frequency distribution and cumulative frequency polygon for these data; b) using the preceding frequency distribution, draw a frequency polygon for the times to complete the task. Comment on the skewness of the data; c) is a run chart an appropriate display for these data? explain why or why not, and if so, construct a run chart; d) calculate the mean time to complete the task on the basis of this sample of 15 observations; e) calculate the median time to complete the task on the basis of this sample of 15 observations; f) calculate the mode time to complete the task on the basis of this sample of 15 observations; g) calculate the standard deviation of the time to complete the task on the basis of this sample of 15 observations; h) calculate the range of these data; i) calculate the Pearson's coefficient of skewness for these data; j) calculate the kurtosis for these data.
