The null hypothesis (h0) might be, “the mean temperature of a healthy individual is 98.6 degrees fahrenheit.”

In simple terms, with hypothesis testing, we are always trying to come to a conclusion about a mean of a single variable or about the means of two variables. For instance, for hypothesis testing with one variable, you might test what the mean temperature of a healthy individual is (a study conducted by Alan Shoemaker).… Continue reading The null hypothesis (h0) might be, “the mean temperature of a healthy individual is 98.6 degrees fahrenheit.”

In your initial post, describe how conditional probability could be used to better understand data (100-150 words).

In your initial post, describe how conditional probability could be used to better understand data (100-150 words). Then describe a real-world scenario in which this might be applicable (50-100 words). The purpose of the content discussions is to engage meaningfully with the relevant themes of the week and explore how to apply them to real-world… Continue reading In your initial post, describe how conditional probability could be used to better understand data (100-150 words).

If twice Betty’s age in years plus Joe’s age in years equals seven, how old are Betty and Joe?

Diophantus was a great mathematician who studied and wrote about problems with two or more unknowns where the solutions were limited to whole numbers. An example of a Diophantine problem is: “If twice Betty’s age in years plus Joe’s age in years equals seven, how old are Betty and Joe?” Solve this problem, and then… Continue reading If twice Betty’s age in years plus Joe’s age in years equals seven, how old are Betty and Joe?
