19) The graph below shows the average cost of renting a studio in one city in each of the years 19)
2002 through 2006. By what percentage does the average price increase from 2002 to 2003?
Obtain a second version of the graph by sliding a piece of paper over the bottom of the
graph so that the bars start at 300. In this new graph, by what percentage does the price
appear to increase from 2002 to 2003? Is the second graph misleading?

20) In a clinical trial for a new headache medication, participants are randomly assigned to a 20)
treatment group or a placebo group. They do not know whether they are receiving the
medication or a placebo. However the doctors administering the medication and
evaluating the results do know which participants are receiving the medication. This
experiment is blind but not double blind. Explain what this means and why the absence of
double blinding could cause a problem.
