Statistics Exam Review Examples
Please see the Statistics Review Checklist for a comprehensive list of all the skills you need to
remember for the exam. Let’s do these examples as a quick review of some of the most
important skills:
1. Emmanuela walks her golden retriever regularly. She kept track of the lengths of her walks
for one month and grouped the data in a frequency table.

a) What is the mode of this data?
b) Use your calculator to find the mean, median,
standard deviation, and range for the length of
Emmanuela’s dog walks. Round to the nearest tenth.
2. In a survey, it was reported that 78.8% - 83.2% of Canadians support bilingualism in Canada.
This poll was reported accurate 97 times out of 100.
a) What is the confidence level of this survey, as a percent?
b) If the population of Canada is 35.3 million people, what is the confidence interval in
number of people who support bilingualism? Round to the nearest tenth of a million
people.
c) What is the margin of error of this survey, as a percent?

A.
B.
C.
4. In a recent survey of students at a particular high school, it was determined that the heights of
students were normally distributed with a mean of 171 cm and a standard deviation of 6.5
cm.
a) Amy is 159 cm tall. What is the z-score of her height, to the nearest hundredth? What
does this mean?
b) If there are 768 students in the school, how many of them are shorter than Amy?
c) Patrick’s height has a z-score of 0.31. How tall is he, to the nearest centimetre?
d) How tall would you have to be to be in the tallest 7% of students in the school? Round to
the nearest centimetre.
