Problem 3 (25%)

A sample of 20 women were asked about the symptoms they felt after taking the COVID19 vaccine. Below are their responses:

 

Headaches Stroke Fever Nausea Tiredness Nausea
Headaches Tiredness Cough Fever Tiredness Cough
Skin Rash Tiredness Cough Fever Nausea Tiredness
Cough Headaches        

 

 

  1. The “Symptoms” is a variable, thus it should be organized into a

.

  1. Qualitative, frequency distribution
  2. Qualitative, frequency table
  3. Quantitative, frequency distribution
  4. Quantitative, frequency table

 

 

  1. Based on the above data, the relative frequency of “tiredness” is:
    1. 4
    2. 5
    3. 2
    4. 25

 

 

  1. If two more women were added to the survey and if they both had a stroke after taking the vaccine, the relative frequency of this symptom would be:
    1. 1
    2. 15
    3. 136
    4. 09

 

  1. Based on the above data, the angle that corresponds to the “Fever” category is:
    1. 15
    2. 54
    3. 8
    4. 58
  2. The best graphical presentation for this data is:
    1. Bar Graph
    2. Histogram
    3. Frequency polygon
    4. Cumulative histogram or cumulative frequency polygon
