BUS 105, Semester 2 ,2017

Instructions for the computing assignment worth 20% of your final grade due week 10

*Last semester many students got 0 out of 20 because many students got their friend to do the assignment using advanced methods the friend used in other courses but they could not reproduce the results themselves. Be aware if you use any advance methods you will HAVE to show them to your tutor you can reproduce the results in the tutorial

*There are 6 sections you must put the answers to all sections into a single document and submit to turnitin. Note that your document must be a Microsoft Word document or pdf. If you use an Apple computer DO NOT SUBMIT A “.PAGES” document save it as a pdf before submitting.

*For sections 1-4 you must use your allocated sample number available from

https://app.box.com/s/qb5gwy7z0k2acvt6so9uuh0q9whv07i8

*Note that there are 5 preparation quizzes on moodle that are also due in week 10 , these will help prepare you for the assignment so you should finish them before finishing the assignment.

*Unlike your other assignments , you do not need references you should Just use the examples given in lectures to do sections 1 to 4, For section 5 you should make up the example yourself without using a reference and in section 6 just use the references provided. if you want to use other sources or advanced software email the lecturer mattthew.maccallum@koi.edu.au

The exact instructions for each of the 6 sections is given below

D) using the zscore from part (C) Find P(Z zscore) , you can find out the answer using www.wolframalpha.com

for example found the zscore was 1.5 if the zscore is 1.5 type in

P(Z 1.5)

into wolfram alpha.com

E) If there was a list of 10,000 estimates ranked from lowest to highest, what rank do you think your estimate would be close to?

Hint: just use the formula

expected rank = P(Z zscore)*10000, remember to show your work.

Section 2

Your dataset must have the following properties.

It must be have at least 5 rows (observations)

it must have at least 2 variables, (note that the name of each thing in the data set is NOT a variable)

At least one of the variables must be categorical

There are 3 options for getting the dataset

Option 1

*Make up your own dataset, this can be about anything you find interesting, So it could be about businesses, customers, students athletes, cats, monkeys, AYTHING AT ALL.

if you make up your own dataset there is no way it will be the same as another students.

Option 2

*Find and existing data set and email the lecturer the dataset matthew.maccallum@koi.edu.au

the lecturer will email you a sample of the data set, use the sample , this will make sure there is no way your sample is the same as other students.

Option 3

*find an existing dataset and make up an extra variable email the lecturer the dataset matthew.maccallum@koi.edu.au

the lecturer will email you a sample of the data set, use the sample , this will make sure there is no way your sample is the same as other students
