Home Value

APSTAT-E46FKF

A high school statistics teacher is interested in the wealth demographics of the students in her district.

She surveyed all of her AP statistics students (n = $110$) and found the median value of their homes is $\$294,034$. The median value of homes in the state the district is located in is $\$179,304$.

What conclusions can be made from this sample?

A

Students in her school seem to have a much higher median home value than the rest of the state does.

B

Students in her school’s AP statistics class must have a higher median home value than the rest of the school.

C

Nothing because she should have used the mean, not the median, for comparison.

D

Nothing since she did not sample randomly from her population of interest.

E

Nothing since the sample was not large enough.
