1. If a person bought 1 share of Google stock within the last year, what is the probability that the stock on that day closed at less than the mean for that year?
2. If a person bought 1 share of Google stock within the last year, what is the probability that the stock on that day closed at more than $500?
3. If a person bought 1 share of Google stock within the last year, what is the probability that the stock on that day closed within $45 of the mean for that year?
4. Suppose a person within the last year claimed to have bought Google stock at closing at $400 per share. Would such a price be considered unusual? Explain.
5. At what price would Google have to close at in order for it to be considered statistically unusual? You should have a low and high value.
6. What are Q1, Q2, and Q3 in this data set?
7. Is the assumption that was made at the beginning valid? Why or why not?
