Quiz Instructions

Question 1 0.5 pts

Instructions: This assignment is regarding measures of central tendency. It is related to your Chapters 2 and 3 (Salkind)
material. It is not timed but assignment must be submitted by the specified due date.

Always save a copy of your responses to the individual assignments before you submit them (either by taking a picture
of your answers or by copying and pasting your answers into a word document). You will need them for you

Below are actual statistics from the 2022-2023 Miami Heat Basketball team. These data represent the percentage of field
goals each player made during the regular season (calculated by the number of field goals made divided by the
number of field goals attempted). In basketball, a field goal is any shot taken from the court. Field goals include two-
pointers, three-pointers, layups, and slam dunks–with a higher score indicating more shots made per attempt, so if a
player has a field goal percentage of 35, that means they made 35% of the shots they tried to make.
