Q. Two dice were rolled 50 times, and their sums were recorded in this bar graph.

How does the theoretical probability of rolling a sum of 12 compare to the experimental probability?



The experimental probability is higher.
The theoretical probability is higher.
Both probabilities are the same.
Neither probability can be compared to the other.
I was sleeping during this lesson.
Q. This stem-and-leaf plot shows the scores from the last English test.

If a test is chosen at random, what is the probability that the score will be divisible by 4 AND greater than 80?



≈ 27%
≈ 55%
≈ 64%
≈ 77%
≈ 80%
Q. This stem-and-leaf plot shows the scores from the last English test.

Q. This stem-and-leaf plot shows the scores from the last English test.

Find the mean, median, and mode of the stem-and-leaf plot. Round each answer to the nearest whole number.



Mean = 82, median = 80, and mode = 81
Mean = 80, median = 81, and mode = 82
Mean = 81, median = 82, and mode = 80
Mean = 82, median = 81, and mode = 80
Mean = 83, median = 82, and mode = 81

Q. 35 students took a test. This box-and-whisker plot shows the results.

Based on this data, would a score of 48 be considered an outlier?



Yes
No
Maybe
What's an outlier?
I refuse to answer that question on the grounds that I don't know the answer.
Q. Elana is growing a plant on her windowsill. Every week she records its height in inches. This scatter plot displays her findings, and a line of best fit is drawn. Based on this plot, how high can she expect the plant to be at 15 weeks?
