31, 36, 37, 17, 25, 27, 32, 54, 37, 21, 19, 26, 26, 29

For these data, the lower quartile is 2525 and the upper quartile is 3636.

  1. Show that the value 54 would be considered an outlier.[3]

The box and whisker diagram for tickets purchased is given below.

The manager of a second small theatre also recorded the number of tickets purchased for the same 14 days, giving the following box and whisker diagram:

AI1014b

The manager of the second theatre claims that, in general, his theatre has more customers than the first theatre.

BioNature Inc. is considering the monthly cost of producing straws made from paper. It is estimated that the rate of change in monthly cost with respect to the number of paper straws produced is modelled by

C(q)=0.006q20.48q12, for q>0C'(q) = 0.006q^2 -0.48q - 12, \text{ for } q > 0

Where the monthly cost, $C\,C, is in thousands and the number of straws, qq, is also in thousands.

  1. Find the number of paper straws that the company should produce in a month to minimize the cost. [4]

The company produces 110000110\hspace{0.15em}000 paper straws with a cost of $88000\$88\hspace{0.15em}000 in a certain month.

  1. Find an expression for CC in terms of qq. [4]

[Maximum mark: 8]

At a university, newly admitted first-year students can start their degrees at any of its seven campuses. The admissions director for the university is interested in finding out whether first-year students show any specific preference in their choice of campus. She forms a model in which she expects the same number of first-year students will select each campus.

The director records the number of first-year students registering at each campus this year to test the model's suitability. The results are shown in the table below.

25b836ef99b037839cd39cecf454359ac6a188cd.svg

A goodness of fit test at a 5%5\% significance level is carried out to test the accuracy of her model.

  1. State the null and alternative hypotheses.[2]

  2. Determine the expected number of registrations at each campus.[1]

  3. Write down the number of degrees of freedom for this test. [1]

  4. State the conclusion to the test, justifying your answer. [4]
