Get the Math and Points Aug 2014 CC Alg I Regents #4

Aug 2014 CC Alg I 4

Let’s go one-by-one through the answer choices:

(1) Median is the middle number
Since there are 4 data points, we take the average of the middle two.
For Company 1, the average of 32,000 and 35,000 is not greater than 37,000 and for company 2, the average of 35,500 and 37,000 is also not greater than 37000.

(2) The mean salary: add them up and divide by 4…the 4 numbers for Company 1 are 30, 32, 35 and 38 while the 4 for Company 2 are 29, 35.5, 37 and 65…that 65 is going to make the mean salary of Company 2 greater than Company 1

(3) Range = High – Low
Company 2 Range = 65,000 – 29,000
Company 1 Range = 38,000 – 30,000
The salary range in company 2 is greater than the salary range of company 1

(4) Mean Age company 1 = (25 + 27 + 28 + 33)/4 = 113/4
Mean age  company 2 = (25 + 28 + 29 + 31)/4 = 113/4
The  mean age is the same at both companies
