Questions & Answers
statistics is the beach of mathematics which deals with collection ,organisation, presentation, analysis and interpretation of numerical data
Saeed
oh but interpretation of data, like what and how? 🤔
Bhavani
interpretation: Think in a way that you have given a company year turnover and you have a record of 100years and data set is like (Year,Turnover). Now with that data you can interpret many thing how was the company growth, when were the losses and other things
Akash
interpretation: it is a process in which we make a decision about a population on the basis of sample data .
example: if we want to interpret the average income of employees for upcoming year so we have to interpret the income of employees on the basis of previous year's income of those employees
Saeed
thank you saeed, Akash. I understood.

Finding correlation and regression
explain statistics whether it is a science or arts or both
I would say art is a creation. A chef is an artist. They create new dishes just like the painters. I believe one who creates something new, is an artist. So, Statistics is also an art, if you know it, you can create some new formula, theory, law, etcetera. It is also Science. So yes, it is both.

how do you use the normal distribution table when testing the hypothesis
Davia
I am sorry Davia, I cannot help you with that.
Rohan
percentages of all the possible outcomes are measured. This is so simple and bases on the questionnaire or interview schedule. It's just measuring the probability chances of high %age of the either part of the hypothesis ... dependent ..independent.

surpose a data set of 2,3,5,6,1,4 are given find median
fastest finger please
lucy
Mean (average) 4...
Median (middle term) 3.5..
Mode (frequency) every element in a set has 1 frequrncy
Akash
i arrange the data set in ascending order. that is, 1,2,3,4,5,6. then find the data set that falls in the middle. in this case, 3 & 4 fall in the middle. you then sum and obtain the average. that is, (3+4)/2=3.5. therefore, 3.5 is the median.
Gbenga
both of you are correct.

f: 5 18 28 12 7 6 4
solve the question please
Mano
can some please help solve so that we learn some
Simonsakala
It is a square chi
Nelson
But can't be a binomial because, the x numbers are 0 to 6, instead those would be "0" or "1" in a straight way
Nelson
You can do a chisquare test, but the assumption has to be a normal distribution, and the last f's number need to be "64"
Nelson
sorry the last f's numbers : "6 and 4" which are the observed values for 5 and 6 (expected values)
Nelson
can't understand basic of statistics ..
rajendra
Sorry I see my mistake, we have to calculate the expected values
Nelson
So we need this equation:
P= (X=x)=(n to x) p^x(1p)^nx
Nelson
why it is not possible brother
ibrar
were n= 2 ( binomial) x= number of makes (0 to 6) and p= probability, could be 0.8.
Nelson
so after we calculate the expected values for each observed value (f) we do the chisquare. x^2=summatory(observedexpected)^2 / expected
and compare with x^2 in table with 0.8
Nelson
tomorrow I'll post the answer, I'm so tired today, sorry for my mistake in the first messages.
Nelson
It is possible, sorry for my mistake
