Practical use of statistics course



However, these statistics are only accurate in 19 / 20 cases. That is to say: a single number has been determined from a sample used to estimate the corresponding population parameter involved. Otherwise, one could say that Confidence Level (α-1) = .95, therefore α = .05

That being said: these numbers do contain a sampling error that is calculated from the standard deviation of the sample statistic.

Math duel - en garde!

A square is defined as a four-sided rhombus, all sides equal, all angles equal.

ooooooooohhhhh!

Ferda said...

flamme!

i.e. 'you've been burned' in French not to be confused with the likeness of some of the said farts...

James said...

Math duel, it's on like donkey kong...

In Euclidean geometry, a circle is the set of all points at a fixed distance, called the radius, from a fixed point, called the centre.


aaaaaahhhhh!

Ferda said...

Look who's calling us nerds, the girl with a pic of a cat in a sink...

Matt said...

Define and "average fart"
Is it
Not over 10 seconds, not less than 1
Not loud enough for people 100 feet away to hear, but loud enough for people 1 meter away to hear?

I got one for you...

Winner gets an apple!

n^0 Power = 1 ...how?

James said...

A fart is defined as:

a mixture of gases that are produced by symbiotic bacteria and yeasts living in the gastrointestinal tract of humans.

When I said average fart, I meant it's the average number of farts for that day. For example, Wednesday's I average 4.

James said...

Oh, I stand correct, Wednesday is 5.

Matt said...

When you add 1 to n^0

Matt said...

I would like my apple hand delivered from BC please

Matt said...

ah, average NUMBER of farts.

(average number of average farts?)

James said...

Something like that.

But seriously Matt, you sould know that 80% of stats are made up.

Matt said...

Unfortunately, I am part of the unlucky 20% who do not know that

James said...

In all honesty, I've likely over - inflated my fart counts.

Ferda said...

umm I highly doubt that! those things could inflate a hot air balloon

Matt said...

I will be asking you before I let you in the door on new years eve,
"Have farted 6 times today?"

Matt said...

That would make a good comic strip.

A cartoon James hung up where the hot air balloon should have it's igniter thing.

ass up in the air.

one hand holding a match.

The other hand pointing at Ferda (in the basket)

Little bubble extending from James mouth says "Pull my finger"

James said...

Beautiful.

Poetry in words.

nice_guy77 said...

Nice job Matt!!
Your apple is being shipped as we speak..not sure if you wanna eat it once it gets there.

Ferda said...
