Question 1 of 20  1.0 Points 
Accepted characters: numbers, decimal point markers (period or comma), sign indicators (), spaces (e.g., as thousands separator, 5 000), "E" or "e" (used in scientific notation). NOTE: For scientific notation, a period MUST be used as the decimal point marker. Complex numbers should be in the form (a + bi) where "a" and "b" need to have explicitly stated values. For example: {1+1i} is valid whereas {1+i} is not. {0+9i} is valid whereas {9i} is not.
A lawyer researched the average number of years served by 45 different justices on the Supreme Court. The average number of years served was 13.8 years with a standard deviation of 7.3 years.
