Fix the errors on the table. Also, explain how someone might have arrived at the incorrect number(s).
Explain what is wrong with this statement: “47 percent of the people surveyed have lived in the U.S. for 5 years.”
Fix the statement above to make it correct.
What fraction of the people surveyed have lived in the U.S. 5 or 7 years?
What fraction of the people surveyed have lived in the U.S. at most 12 years?
What fraction of the people surveyed have lived in the U.S. fewer than 12 years?
What fraction of the people surveyed have lived in the U.S. from 5 to 20 years, inclusive?
A “random survey” was conducted of 3274 people of the “microprocessor generation” (people born since 1971, the year the microprocessor was invented). It was reported that 48% of those individuals surveyed stated that if they had $2000 to spend, they would use it for computer equipment. Also, 66% of those surveyed considered themselves relatively savvy computer users. (

Do you consider the sample size large enough for a study of this type? Why or why not?
Based on your “gut feeling,” do you believe the percents accurately reflect the U.S. population for those individuals born since 1971? If not, do you think the percents of the population are actually higher or lower than the sample statistics? Why?
Additional information: The survey was reported by Intel Corporation of individuals who visited the Los Angeles Convention Center to see the Smithsonian Institure's road show called “America’s Smithsonian.”
With this additional information, do you feel that all demographic and ethnic groups were equally represented at the event? Why or why not?
With the additional information, comment on how accurately you think the sample statistics reflect the population parameters.

anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change .
maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
Prasenjit
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
Damian
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
Azam
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
