QNT 275 Week 2 Mini- Project 3-3 (Movie Data Set)


FOR MORE CLASSES VISIT www.qnt275study.com

Purpose of Assignment This assignment provided students with practice in understanding the relationship of averages and standard deviation to make an informed business decision about the gross income performance of each movie genre. Students will learn to implement the use of these statistical measures for better business decision-making. Resources: Week 2 Videos; Week 2 Readings; Statistics Lab Tutorial help on ExcelÂŽ and Word functions can be found on the MicrosoftÂŽ Office website. There are also additional tutorials via the web offering support for Office products. Assignment Steps Refer to Mini-Project Movie Data Set. Analyze and write a report summarizing this data. This report should include answers to at least the following questions: 1. Calculate the summary measures (the mean, standard deviation, fivenumber summary, and interquartile range) of the total gross income for each movie genre. 2. Which genre had greater variability in total gross income? Explain why.


3. Draw a box-and-whisker plot of a movie's length of time (minutes) by genre. Are there any differences in movie lengths when compared across genres? Are there any outliers? Use the mean movie gross income for each genre to compare the movie opening gross income. Choose an appropriate statistical measure to compare the consistency of movie gross income. Make the calculations and write a 700-word report comparing the total movie gross income and the consistency of movie opening gross by genre. Format your assignment consistent with APA guidelines.

QNT 275 Week 3 Apply: Connect Week 3 Case


Part 1

Three hundred consumers between 21 and 49 years old were randomly selected. After sampling a new wine cooler, each was asked to rate the appeal of the phrase: “Not sweet like wine coolers, not filling like beer, and more refreshing than wine or mixed drinks” as it relates to the new wine cooler. The rating was made on a scale from 1 to 5, with 5 representing “extremely appealing” and with 1 representing “not at all appealing”.

As a manager overseeing the development of the concept, you bottle the wine cooler and placed it into distribution in one test store.


Your manager has asked you to assess the data and determine the most likely customer based on the ratings. Additionally, your manager would like you to review sales in the test store.

Use the Week 3 Data Set to create and calculate the following in ExcelÂŽ:

Estimate the probability that a randomly selected 21 to 49 year old consumer:

Would give the phrase a rating of 5

Would give the phrase a rating of 3 or higher

Is in the 21-24 age group

Is a male who gives the phrase a rating of 4


Is a 35 to 49 year old who gives the phrase a rating of 1

Based on the probabilities for the ratings of 4 and 5, which age/gender demographic would be the best target audience for the new concept?

Create a probability distribution using the data which shows how many cartons of the wine cooler were bought per customer in a month.

Calculate the mean and the standard deviation of your probability distribution.

Calculate the probability that exactly 3 six packs will be bought in a month.

Calculate the probability that between 4 and 8 six packs will be bought in a month.

Calculate the probability that at least 5 six packs will be bought in a month.

Calculate the probability that no more than 5 six packs will be bought in a month.


Create a relative frequency distribution based on the wine cooler drinking temperatures.

Create 6 bins with the same interval in each.

Create a histogram

Considering the mean and standard deviation for the ideal drinking temperature:

Calculate z values then refer to Table 6.1 – Cumulative Areas Under the Standard Normal Curve

Calculate the probability of the wine cooler being less than 45 degrees.

Calculate the probability of the wine cooler being greater than 60 degrees.

Calculate the percentage of wine coolers served at the ideal temperature, between 49 and 55 degrees.

Part 1


You manage Human Relations for your company. One of your sales managers has retired, leaving an opening. You are considering two different employees for the position. Both are highly qualified so you have decided to evaluate their sales performance for the past year.

Use the Week 4 Data Set to create and calculate the following in ExcelÂŽ:

Determine the range of values in which you would expect to find the average weekly sales for the entire sales force in your company 90% of the time.

Calculate the impact of increasing the confidence level to 95%?


Calculate the impact of increasing the sample size to 150, assuming the same mean and standard deviation, but allowing the confidence level to remain at 90%?

Based on the calculated confidence interval for weekly sales on the sample of 50 reps at a 90% confidence level:

Calculate both Repsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; average weekly performance and highlight if it is greater than the population mean.

You want to determine whether there is a statistically different average weekly sales between Sales Rep A and Sales Rep B.

Create Null and Alternative Hypothesis statements that would allow you to determine whether their sales performance is statistically different or not.

Use a significance level of .05 to conduct a t-test of independent samples to compare the average weekly sales of the two candidates.

Calculate the p-value?


Considering that individual you did not promote:

Determine whether this person’s average weekly sales are greater than the average weekly sales for the 50 sales reps whose data you used to develop confidence intervals.

Create Null and Alternative Hypothesis statements that would allow you to determine whether the new Sales Manager’s weekly average sales are greater than the sample of Sales Reps.

Use a significance level of .05 to conduct a t-test of independent samples to compare the average weekly sales of both.

Calculate the p-value?

You are the manager of a retail store. You want to investigate how metrics can improve the way you manage your business.

Use the Week 5 Data Set to create and calculate the following in ExcelÂŽ:

Conduct a goodness of fit analysis which assesses orders of a specific item by size (expected) and items you received by size (observed).


Conduct a hypothesis test with the objective of determining if there is a difference between what you ordered and what you received at the .05 level of significance.

Identify the null and alternative hypotheses.

What is your conclusion?

Generate a scatter plot, the correlation coefficient, and the linear equation that evaluates whether a relationship exists between the number of times a customer visited the store in the past 6 months and the total amount of money the customer spent.

Set up a hypothesis test to evaluate the strength of the relationship between the two variables.

Use a level of significance of .05.

Use the regression line formula to forecast how much a customer might spend on merchandise if that customer visited the store 13 times in a 6 month period.

Consider the average monthly sales of 2014, $1310, as your base then


Calculate indices for each month for the next two years (based on the 24 months of data).

Graph a time series plot.

In the Data Analysis Toolpak, use Excelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Exponential Smoothing option.

Apply a damping factor of .5, to your monthly sales data, then create a new time series graph that compares the original and the revised monthly sales data.
