stats questions pt 1

Prior to the 1999-2000 season, the National Basketball Association (NBA) made several rule changes designed to increase scoring. The average number of points scored in the previous season had been 183.2. A random sample of 25 games from the 1999-2000 season had a sample mean of 195.88 pts per game, a sample median of 196 pts per game and a sample standard deviation of 20.27 pts. The dot-plot of the data is shown below.
