This week I would like you to use the internet to secure a data set. Choose the following website and choose HR which is the record of all home runs hit during the 2017 Baseball Season: MLB Team Stats – 2017
Use the data from 2017 as a sample to estimate the mean number of home runs hit by a Major League Baseball team each year. Be sure to note that this information is being used as a sample not population data. There are 30 major league baseball teams so you will have a data set of 30 values. Find the mean and the standard deviation for the number of home runs hit by each team. Be careful to select one from each team. Be sure to include an excel file of your data set. Find a 95% confidence interval for the mean number of home runs hit by a Major League Baseball team each year. I am including a link for you to use to find the sample mean and sample standard deviation. Video on using excel
Initial post by Wednesday at 11:59 PM: Post the home run data for the 2017 Baseball Season.
Subsequent post: Thursday until Sunday by 11:59 PM. Post the 95% Confidence interval for the mean number of home runs hit by a Major League Baseball team. Also be sure to respond to at least one of your colleagues helping them with further understanding confidence intervals. The following link will help you use excel to find the mean and sample standard deviation:
