A personal trainer is interested in the typical physical activity of her clients. She asked a sample of her customers how many hours of exercise they get each week, and recorded the data below. Describe her findings using everything you've learned about measures of central tendency, measures of variability, and describe the shape of the distribution

х= 2, 3, 3, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 5, 6, 6, 6, 7, 7, 8, 8

measures of central tendency: Mean , Median and Mode

Measures of variability: Range, Interquartile Range and standard deviation

Mean is larger than the median, so it is positively skewed

measures the maximum heart rate in beats per minute with the
following results. Can the physical trainer conclude that there is
a difference among...
