Renee pose la question :
I am an AP Statistics student who is reviewing for the exam.

On one of my review worksheets, we have to create a stem-and-leaf plot for values with 2 decimal places (i.e. 9.14, 8.14, 8.74, 8.77, 9.26, 8.1, 6.13, 3.1, 9.13, 7.26, and 4.74).

How would I make the stem-and-leaf plot for this? I've already searched your database and nothing popped up.

If you could help me, that would be great. Thank you!

I found your web site through ask.com & it's great. Really hoping you can help me. We are looking at purchasing an existing home with a lot size that is advertised at 2.04 acres, however, even with my limited math skills I know this is not correct.

Their calculation takes the deepest part of the lost (179 feet) multiplied by the widest part of the lost (497.26 feet) as if it was a perfect rectangle. As you can see from the faxed diagram it is far from rectangular in shape.

Can you advise as to the true lot size? As I mentioned we are looking at this property as a purchase so time is of the essence. I have also faxed this information (with the diagram) to the number listed on your web site. Thank you so much for your help.

I need to know if I have enough square footage to build a second home on the rear lot. The lot has five sides. Only one angle is a 90 deg. angle. The others I cannot determine. Of the 4 remaining angles, all 4 angles are obtuse, or greater than 90 deg. The dementions are 89.19' x 130' x 118.52' x 65' x 170.94'. The two legs that make the 90 deg angle are 89.19' and 170.94'.

• E,F,G & H are running for congress

• I,J & K are running for senate

• L,M & N are running for governor

They are all on the same ballot. But in each race their name (for instance A) has to be in the #1 rotation, #2 rotation, #3 rotation, and #4 rotation for his race on this ballot an equal number of times as B,C and D.

The same goes for the other candidates for their perspective races.

Box and Whisker plots 2001-11-19
Rod pose la question :
In our Prealgebra course, we have been studying Box and Whisker plots. Recently, we learned how to decide whether a data point is an outlier or not. The book (Math Thematics, McDougall Littell) gave a process by which we find the interquartile range, then multiply by 1.5. We add this number to the upper quartile, and any points above this are considered to be outliers. We also subtract the number from the lower quartile for the same effect.

My question: where does this 1.5 originate? Is this the standard for locating outliers, or can we choose any number (that seems reasonable, like 2 or 1.8 for example) to multiply with the Interquartile range? If it is a standard, were outliers simply defined via this process, or did statisticians use empirical evidence to suggest that 1.5 is somehow optimal for deciding whether data points are valid or not?

The probabilities of being an "instant winner" of \$25 or \$50 in a lottery are 1/600 and 1/1200, respectively. The mathematical expectation of being an "instant winner" of \$25 or \$50 is?

Fitting a Curve 1999-01-19
Kirk pose la question :
Hello my name is Kirk from Scarborough, Ontario.

I have been out of a formal education system for thirty years. I program microcontrollers in my spare time. I have built a temperature sensing device ready to go but, thermistors are very non-linear. I do know that there is a way to calculate the input condition of the thermistor and display the correct temperature in degrees C. I am sending a file to show my progression so far.

Complex numbers and the quadratic formula 1998-12-25
Richard Peter pose la question :
My age is 16, and my name is Richard. My question relates to the topic complex numbers & the quadratic formula.

I would like to know how to solve quadratic equations in which the discriminant is less than 0 (i.e. we get two complex solutions to the quadratic)

3x2+2x+5 = 0

and how mathematicians like euler contributed to this field. If it would be possible I would also like to know how this type of quadratic equations can be graphed?

Ken Bokinac pose la question :
During our math class last week we came accross an equation that we could not graph we were wondering if you could help us try and graph it. The question is:

y=(-2)^x
