Please draw a skewed distribution and label where you would find the mean, median and mode. Is the skew positive or negative? (3 pts)2. In an office with 7 workers, all entered a weight loss competition among each other. After a few weeks ofdieting, their weight loss (in pounds) were as follows: 5, 7, 3, 0, 2, 4, 3. For this database, please: (total11.5 pts- show all steps)1. calculate the measures of central tendency (3 of them).a. compare the 3 – what does each “say/represent” about the distributionb. overall, based on the measures, is the data symmetrical or skewed, if is, which directionc. identify which you believe to be the most appropriate to report and why2. calculate the measures of dispersion/variability (3 of them). Create & show appropriate tableneeded to be used to calculate 2 of them..a. which measure of variability would be most appropriate to report for this data and why?3. Given the following information: Mean=40 years & sd = 1.5 years: What is the probability that the next student you meet will be: (show work) (20 pts total)a. Between 39 & 40b. Between 38 & 42c.
