A quality control supervisor has taken a sample of 16 bolts from the output of a thread-cutting machine and tested their tensile strengths. The results, in tons of force required for breakage, are as follows:
a. Determine the mean, median, range, and midrange.
b. Calculate the mean absolute deviation.
c. Calculate the standard deviation and variance.
A computer and statistical software will be desirable and useful. However, any necessary calculations can also be done with the aid of a pocket calculator. For readers using statistical software, keep in mind the file-naming key— for example, the data for Exercise 3.57 will be in data file XR03057.
