Answer:

The correct options are:

  • Four families said they ate out twice the previous week.
  • One family said they ate out 5 times the previous week.
  • The median best represents the data set.

Step-by-step explanation:

We are given a data set as:

4, 2, 2, 0, 1, 6, 3, 2, 5, 1, 2, 4, 0, 1

On arranging this data set in the frequency table we get:

Number of times they went for dinner    Number of families  

           0                                                          2

           1                                                           3

           2                                                          4

           3                                                           1

           4                                                           2

           5                                                           1

           6                                                            1

  • Hence, the range of the number line is between 0 to 6.
  • Also there are 4 dots above 2.

    Hence,  Four families said they ate out twice the previous week.

  • Also there is one dot above 5.

        Hence,  One family said they ate out 5 times the previous week.

  • The data set is not symmetrical since the median is 2 and the data points to the left and to the right do not have symmetry.

Hence, the data set is not symmetrical.

  • Also we know that the median of the data is the central tendency of the data and always best represents the data.

Hence, The median best represents the data set.
