RANGE, SD, AND VARIANCE

RIDDLE: What did the control tower say to the jet that was on fire?

Directions: To find the answer to the riddle, write the answers to the problems on the lines. The word in the solution section beside the answer to the first problem is the first word in the answer to the riddle, the word beside the answer to the second problem is the second word, and so on.

Use "high minus low plus one" to compute the range. Round the SD to two
decimal places. Round the variances to one decimal place.

Group E's scores: 0, 11, 7, 7, 8, 11, 5, 10

Group F's scores: 2, 2, 25, 9, 25, 9, 15, 5, 20

Group G's scores: 8, 9, 9, 10, 12, 10, 12, 12, 12, 11
