Calc, interpret the variance and standard deviation of a population of a sample

.

26

Calc, interpret the proportion of observations falling within a specified number of standard deviations of the mean using Chebyshev's inequality.

.

27

Calculate and interpret the coefficient of variation

30

Describe the relative locations of the mean, median, mode for a unimodal, nonsymmetrical distribution

Unimodal Distribution: For the positively skewed unimodal distribution, the mode is less than the median, which is less than the mean.
