A:
Answer:P16= 6.1Step-by-step explanation:We have given:The weights (in pounds) of 30 newborn babies are listed below. Find p16. 5.5 5.7 5.8 6.0 6.1 6.1 6.3 6.4 6.5 6.6 6.7 6.7 6.7 6.9 7.0 7.0 7.0 7.1 7.2 7.2 7.4 7.5 7.7 7.7 7.8 8.0 8.1 8.1 8.3 8.7To find the P(16) first we have to sort out our data.Our data is already in  sorted form.Now apply the formula to find the P16 which means 16th percentile.P(n)/100where P= 16and n = 30=16(30)/100=480/100= 4.8 ≈ 5If you round it to 5 you get P16 = 6.1....
