Given the following values of the function y = f (x); evaluate f (4) and also find x for which f (x) = 25.

f (1) = 10, f (2) = 15, f (3) = 42.


Given that y = f (x), So

x 1 2 3 4

y 10 15 42?

To find the missing value, we use binomial expansion method. Here 3 values are known, we would take third order finite difference zero. Thus,

In a ticket counter, at some point of time the sequence of males (M) and females (F) was found as


Use runs test to examine if the sequence is random (5 % critical value of the number r of runs with n 1 = 11, n 2 = 10 is 6).


Suppose a sample size n contains n 1 symbols of one type and n 2 symbols of the other type. The null hypothesis is the symbols occur in random order. The alternative is the symbols occur in a set pattern. The lower and upper critical value is obtained from tables.… (93 more words) …
