you're not meant to.

But, if you have to,

let's say the first data point is (w,x) and the second is (y,z), the nth point will be equal to:

What is the median of 15 min57sec and16min1sec?

The median of an even number of data points is the mean of the two that are central. Since you gave only 2 data points, the median is going to be the mean of the two data points, so 15'59" ■

What if the median equals the minimum value?

The only way that this could happen if enough of the data points have the same value at the minimum. The median is the middle number in a set of data points.So for example: {2,2,2,3,4}. The middle number is 2, which is also the minimum value.

How do you work out speed using mean and median?

Mean is the average of a set of data points = (Sum of all data) / Quantity of DataMedian is the middle of a set of data points = Data whose index is the integer nearest ((Number of Data+1) / 2)Example Data:2, 3, 5, 3, 2The mean = (2+3+5+3+2)/5 = 15/5 = 3The median = Index((5+1)/2) = Index(6/2) = Index(3). The third item on our list is 5.

How do you get slope with no graph?

If you are given 2 data points, you can do (y1-y2)/(x1-x2) with the points. Given two intercepts, you can assume points based on the intercepts (if the x-intercept is 7, then one data point is (7,0). Then you can do the above once you do the same for the y-intercept.

What is the TRIMMEAN function for in Excel?

TRIMMEAN calculates the mean taken by excluding a percentage of data points from the top and bottom ends of a data set. You can use this function when you wish to exclude outlying data from your analysis. =TRIMMEAN(array, percent) Array is the array or range of values to trim and average. Percent is the fractional number of data points to exclude from the calculation. For example, if percent = 0.2, 4 points are trimmed from a data set of 20 points (20 x 0.2): 2 from the top and 2 from the bottom of the set. It does not matter what order your values are entered in. It will remove some of the highest and some of the lowest.

What is a standard deviation?

Standard deviation is a statistical tool used to determine how tight or spread out your data is. In effect, this is quantitatively calculating your precision, the reproducibility of your data points. Here's how you find it: 1). Take the average of all the data points in your set. 2). Find the deviation of each point by finding the difference between each data point and the mean. 3). Add the squares of each deviation together. 4). Divide by one less than the number of data points. If there are 20 data points, divide by 19. 5). Take the square root of this value. 6). Done.

What three points determine a pane?

Any 3 geometric points, as long as they are all in different locations and not superimposed on each other, will define a plane. In other words, there is only one plane that can pass through 3 distinct points. If you had only two points, it would define a line, but not a plane. A plane can include 2 points but if there are only 2 that are specified, the plane can rotate around those 2 points, generating infinitely many planes.

What are 3 states of data for protection?

1. Moving Data (Traffic) 2. Data at rest (Databases etc.) 3. Data at End-Points (USB-Sticks, CD/DVD etc.) Used in DLP (Data Loss Prevention). For example: Data at rest must be protected most carefully, moving data must be constantly monitored. Data at End-Points is harder to control and has proven to be the most likely reason for loss of confidential data (e.g. a staff members copies data on a CD) because it's not that easy to monitor as moving or resting data.

How do you find the equation for the line of best fit?

There are many ways, but probably you aren't in a statistics class, but in an algebra class. Step 1 plot all the data points on a coordinate plane graph (x-y graph) Step 2 estimate a line 'close' to points. Step 3 use 2 points ON THE LINE (these do not need to be data points) Step 4 find slope of line using points from step 3 Step 5 use point-slope formula to write the equation.

How do find the interquartile range in your data?

Arrange the data in increasing order and count the number of data points = N. Find the integer K = N/2 or (N+1)/2. The Kth number in the ordered set is the median. Now consider only the numbers from the smallest to the median and find the median of this subset. This is the lower quartile = Q1. Then consider only the numbers from the original median to the largest. Find the median of this subset. It is the upper quartile = Q3. Then IQR = Q3 - Q1
