D. 5th percentile. Similarly, since the mean is larger than 50% of the values, the mean of a normal distribution is always at the 50th percentile. Percentiles, rather than number of standard deviations away from the mean, are a practical way to understand where a particular data point lies. Fig. 3 shows the same normal distribution with percentile markings. As already mentioned, not all data is normally distributed. Consider the population of a wealthy seaside community, which for the sake of simplicity has only five inhabitants.

To calculate the probability of getting Jack’s result or a more extreme result we simply add the probability of getting Jack’s result and the probabilities of the tables that are less likely to occur than Jack’s result.

2, the grand mean is [2 + 3 + 10 + 2 + 8 + 6 + 8 + 4 + 2 + 10 + 8 + 9 + 3 + 10 + 5]/15 = 6. SStotal = (2 − 6)2 + (3 − 6)2 + · · · = 140. Next, we can calculate the explained variability. This is the variability explained by differences from group to group. We begin by calculating a 29 Analysis of Variance quantity known as the between groups sum of squares: SSbetween groups = n (x group − grand mean)2 . This x group is the mean of each of the groups and n is the number of observations in each group (in this case, 5).
