2.5   Table 2-21 shows data on the performance of 14 trained female distance runners. The variables measured are the running time (minutes) in a 10 kilometer road race and the maximal aerobic power collected during the week following the run.

(a)    Calculate the mean, median, MAD, MSD, and standard deviation for each variable.

(b)    Which of these statistics give a measure of the center of data and which give a measure of the spread of data?

(c)    Calculate the correlation of the two variables and pro- duce a scatterplot of Y against X.
