Home Value


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?


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


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


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


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


Nothing since the sample was not large enough.
