This solid text presents ideas and concepts more clearly for students who have little or no background in statistics. The Twelveth Edition retains all the elements and style that educators nationwide have come to expect—clear prose, excellent problems and precise presentation of mathematics involved—while eliminating some of the computational drudgery.
Introduces fundamentals of statistics, covering areas including measures of location, probability distributions, regression, and nonparametric tests. Features learning aids such as chapter summaries, key terms, conceptual and computational exercises and answers, and cumulative review questions, plus statistical tables. This ninth edition offers displays of key equations and concepts, MINITAB 10 examples, reduced complexity of exercises, icons identifying optional material, and a new chapter on multiple comparisons.
