Best Answer

Time is ratio data because it has a true, meaningful data. You can say that at time 20 seconds, it is twice the amount of time than 10 seconds.

Interval data doesn't have a true zero e.g. degrees celcius. Although you can say 60 degrees is hotter than 30 degrees you can't say that it is twice as hot.

It is a HISTOGRAM.

No.

A variable measured at the interval or ratio level can have more than one arithmetic mean.

Look at the data and see what is the average difference between the numbers. That is the reasonable interval.

Age is none of the items listed. Age is ratio data.

No; since you refer to a math score (and not a math grade), it is ratio data.

Data comes in various sizes and shapes. Two of them are Interval and Ratio. Interval is a measurement where the difference between two values is meaningful and follows a linear scale. For example: in physics, temperature 0.0 on either F or C does not mean 'no temperature'; in biology, a pH of 0.0 does not mean 'no acidity'. Interval data is continuous data where differences are interpretable, ordered, and constant scale, but there is no 'natural' zero. Ratio is the relation in degree or number between two similar things or a relationship between two quantities, ordered, constant scale, with natural zero. Ratio data is interpretable. Ratio data has a natural zero. A good example is birth weight in kg. The distinctions between interval and ratio data are slight. Certain specialized statistics, such as a geometric mean and a coefficient of variation can only be applied to ratio data.

Interval-Ratio can use all three measures, but the most appropriate should be mean unless there is high skew, then median should be used.

Telephone numbers are actually nominal data.

Four types of intermittent schedules of reinforcement are fixed ratio, variable ratio, fixed interval, and variable interval. Fixed ratio schedules provide reinforcement after a set number of responses, while variable ratio schedules provide reinforcement after a varying number of responses. Fixed interval schedules provide reinforcement after a set time interval, while variable interval schedules provide reinforcement after a varying time interval.

The ratio of change in position to the time interval is known as velocity. Velocity is a vector quantity that describes how fast an object's position changes and in what direction. It is calculated by dividing the change in position by the time interval.

Ratio reinforcement schedules deliver reinforcement based on the number of responses emitted by the individual, while interval reinforcement schedules deliver reinforcement based on the passage of time and the first response after a specified time interval. Ratio schedules tend to generate higher response rates compared to interval schedules.
