    Hi guys! Does anyone know the answer to this?

    Is the sd affected by multiplication or addition
    Is the mean affected by multiplication or addition
    sd is affected by only multiplication/division
    mean is affected by multiplication, division, addition and subtraction

    standard deviation measures how spread out data is from the mean.

    logically, if you added 10 to each piece of data, the standard deviation would stay the same as each point would move 10 places and the distance between them would stay the same. so standard deviation is not affected by addition/subtraction. however, standard deviation IS affected by multiplication/division. Think of transforming graphs-- when you add or subtract 2 from a graph, all points move 2 places. if you multiplied a graph by 2, the graph is stretched and the distance between each point has changed. in the same way, standard deviation is affected by multiplication/division

    as for the mean...it is a measure of location and is affected by ALL coding.

    Does S1 have any annoying rules with rounding and significant figures like M1 does (in M1 every answer must be given to 2sf or 3sf).

    Most mark schemes say "awrt", is this always the case?
    Assuming they dont specify anything in the question, any number of decimal places/sig figs is always accepted?

    do you know how coding affects Sxx, Sxy and Syy ?
    I'm so confused

    thanks for that!:gthumb:

    do you think Sxy and Syy would be decoded that way too?

    Sxx, Sxy, Syy are only affected by multiplication/division and it is the factor squared. So similar to variance in that sense

    What exactly must you make sure you do when drawing a line of regression? Like should i extrapolate to the y axis, should i plot the mean points ??

    line of regression must pass through the mean point

    When new values are added to the data how do the mean/median/sd/PMCC/Sxx/Sxy change? Does it depend on the value that was added, and if so how?

    e.g i just did question 2e here and i understand the first two but why does standard deviation decrease?
