Please do each part separately. This is falls in the same perimeters of the last assignment that you completed for me. Please let me know if any additional information is needed. Thank you.

Part 1 Histograms and Descriptive Statistics
Section 1: Histograms and Visual Interpretation
Section 1 will include one histogram of total scores for all the males in the data set, and one histogram of total scores for all the females in the data set.
Using the total and gender variables in your grades.sav data set, create two histograms:
A histogram for male students.
A histogram for female students.
Copy the histogram output from SPSS and paste it into a Word document. Below the histograms in your Word document, provide an interpretation based on your visual inspection. Correctly use all of the following terms in your discussion:
Skew.
Kurtosis.
Outlier.
Symmetry.
Modality.
Comment on any differences between males and females regarding their total scores. Analyze the strengths and limitations of visually interpreting histograms.
Section 2: Calculate and Interpret Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion
Using the grades.sav file, compute descriptive statistics, including mean, standard deviation, skewness, and kurtosis for the following variables:
id
gender
ethnicity
gpa
quiz3
total
Copy the descriptives output from SPSS and paste it into your Word document. Below the descriptives output table in your Word document:
Indicate which variables are meaningless to interpret in terms of mean, standard deviation, skewness, and kurtosis. Justify your decision.
Next, indicate which variables are meaningful to interpret. Justify your decision.
For the meaningful variables, do the following:
Specify any variables that are in the ideal range for both skewness and kurtosis.
Specify any variables that are acceptable but not excellent.
Specify any variables that are unacceptable.
Explain your decisions.
For all meaningful variables, report and interpret the descriptive statistics (mean, standard deviation, skewness, and kurtosis).

Renewable Energy Systems

Order Description

A hospital located in Tanzania is connected to the country’s electrical power grid but experiences power outages often and for a very variable length of time. The hospital must have a reliable and continuous power supply in order to function effectively and for patient safety. A system is to be developed to enable power to be available for the use of the hospital during power outages in the grid supply.
Tanzania has a grid supply of frequency 50Hz, 380V ph-ph or 220V single phase. It is known that the hospital has an average load to the grid of 100kVA and a peak load of 135kVA. More detail than that is not known at this stage, so the specification that follows is based on assumptions that may not be correct for this particular site.
A power supply is to be available to the hospital at all times.
The peak total load demand of 135kVA is to be supplied by a diesel generator. It is intended that this generator is not to be left running during periods of normal supply but will be started when the supply fails.
A backup diesel generator of 50kVA is to be available for use in critical areas should the main generator fail to operate when required.
A high integrity, uninterruptable supply of average 4kVA and peak of 12kVA is required for the three operating theatres and a separate high integrity, uninterruptable supply of average 3.5kVA and peak 4.5kVA is required for the computer centre.
The switching over of the sources of the supplies to the operating theatres should be uninterrupted and should not involve voltage spikes of greater that 10% of supply voltage. The supply to the computer centre should be virtually free of spikes.
A separate battery supply is to be made available for emergency HF SSB communications transceiver with a maximum transmit power output of 100W and should be rated to provide an average power of 30W for 2 weeks.
A UK charity has negotiated a loan from a UK bank for the purchase of the capital equipment for the project at a fixed annual discount rate of 4.8% to be repaid monthly over 20 years. Equipment can be sourced from any country but all transactions should be made in £GB.
Your task is to specify and source the equipment required for the project and to present an outline of the system in the form of a block diagram and a clear list of the equipment to be used as well as sufficient information to allow the equipment to be purchased from a supplier. As a minimum, this should include, but not be limited to, all those parts shown in bold above. You should cost the equipment and calculate the total capital cost of it and the monthly repayments that will need to be made by the hospital to the bank.

– Find the suitable equipment and cost it.

Q5. To answer this question, use Minitab whenever possible.
The owner of a caravan sales company, Mr Smith, wishes to predict gross sales. A study randomly selects 40 months and collects information about the number of sellers employed, average monthly temperatures, number of different caravan models in inventory during the month, and advertising expenditures. For this question use the data set contained in the Minitab worksheet file DataCW.MTW available through Moodle (link http://moodlecurrent.gre.ac.uk/pluginfile.php/487278/mod_ resource/content/1/DataCW.MTW)
(a) Run a correlation matrix, show your results and analyse them.
(b) Discuss the importance of each predictor variable.
(c) Which regression equation should Mr Smith use to estimate gross sales if he wishes to include all the statistically significant predictor variables? Use the 0.05 significance level.
(d) Interpret the regression coefficients in this model.
(e) What percentage of the gross sales is being explained by that model?
(f) Interpret the results of the F-test.
(g) Which regression equation would you advise Mr Smith to use? Why?
(h) How effective is the regression equation that you have chosen?
(i) Is collinearity a problem in the equation chosen in part (c), and if so, what effects might it have?
(j) 68% of the sales should fall within what distance of the sales estimated from the regression plane? Use the regression equation chosen in part (g) and justify your answer.
(k) Using the equation you selected in part (g), estimate gross sales, given the following:
• There are 4 salespeople employed
• The average temperature is 40o for the month
• There are 5 different caravan models in inventory • The advertising expenditures are £750
(l) Discuss the accuracy of this prediction.
