    For normal distribution is the middle line/axis the mean? So its usually 0 but for Z it would be the mean??
    The x axis are the values that the distributions take. (for Z, the 'centre' is indeed 0, and the probability of values lying in either half is 0.5). For other distrubtions, the 'middle line' you describe is the mean, yes.

    and the y axis is the probability of an individual point occuring but that's not so relevant (so you can see that the mean is the most probable value that the distribution would take, and then as you move further away the chances of those further values occuring decreases.

    Are you 100% sure?

    Because I really am unsure and don't want this to cost me marks haha....
    This is how I remember it matey, and I'm sure this works.

    Just always use N/2. Avoid getting confused.
    For Discrete, use N/4, N/2 and 3N/4. If you get a decimal place as your result, ROUND UP to the nearest integer. If you get an integer as your result, TAKE THE AVERAGE of that value and the next value.
    For Continuous, just use N/4, N/2 and 3N/4 standard - then interpolate.

    That's how I remember. You can use N+1/2, but it's a different rule which for me makes it more confusing.

    Can someone explain (e) ? Where the mean is 10.8 and SD is 7.46

    One measure of location (from box plots the median)
    On measure of spread (range or IQR for box plots)
    And I think also skewness (Q2-Q1<Q3-Q2 positive Q2-Q1>Q3-Q2 negative)

    Wait, so.. If I get an integer, say 15, and the next number is 16, my quartile will be 15.5?

    Ok so it's a matter of substitution- youve been given the codes for x and y

    so instead of y=0.746+0.102x,
    you will now get v/100,000 = 0.746 + 0.102*(s-50/10)

    then simplify:
    v= 23600 + 1020 s

    ergo, d= 1020
    Thank you. Good luck for the exam ☺

    Work out the Midpoints, Work out the Frequency with the Frequency Density, then Multiply your Frequency and Midpoint Values before Adding the Sum. The model answers have the method at the bottom of the last left page.

    So, say you have 60 values. You want to work out the lower quartile. Do n/4 ---> 6/4 -----> 15. So you use the 15.5th value.

    and this would be done on say a stem and leaf diagram?

    So, if you have a Coding where of say 2X+6, you ignore the +6. You multiply the Sxx by 4 (because that's 2^2), You multiply the Sxy by 2, and you don't multiply the Syy. That's what I saw from someone else. PMCC remains the same always.

    Yes, that would be an example of when you would use that method.
