Purpose
Music, one of the many factors that enhance our lives, has been a widely ranged field. From Classical music to Hip Hop, there are listeners of all ages, each having their own preference of music. Through research, it has been discovered that memory can be affected by many different factors, including music. Music has been found to stimulate parts of the brain, alleviating stress and depression. Additional research also shows that music, especially Classical, enhances the storage and recall of memory. Therefore we decided to test the effect of music on memory to evaluate the changes and differences. Design

Population Inference: B.A. HS Students. Two classrooms were used for the treatment with music and two classrooms were used for the control groups. A test on vocabulary consisting of 10 words was given to two of these classrooms where the vocabulary words are provided prior to the test to see if music will affect the student’s memory. No name was required to be written on the tests, of course. Classical music was played during the entirety of the experiment. 5 minutes were given for studying for the test and 5 minutes were given for taking the test. The number correct was averaged from the two classrooms treated with music and the scores correct were averaged from the two classrooms with no music playing. The differences between these averages were compared using a two-sample mean inference testing. μ1 represents the control group’s average score, μ2 represents the treatment group’s average percentage. The null hypothesis (H0): there is no difference in test score with and without music: μ 1= μ 2; The alternative hypothesis (Ha); there is a difference in test score with and without music: μ 1≠ μ 2 Lurking Variable

Different people might be affected by different types of music, so it is fair to control that difference by limiting the music to one type,...

...of 1000 flights and proportions of three routes in the sample. He divides them into different sub-groups such as satisfaction, refreshments and departure time and then selects proportionally to highlight specific subgroup within the population. The reasons why Mr Kwok used this sampling method are that the cost per observation in the survey may be reduced and it also enables to increase the accuracy at a given cost.

...progressing. The company provided a data sample from the past 12 months with 200 entries, each with 6 variables. The aim of this report is to evaluate the success of CCResorts in fulfilling their key performance indicators as outlined in their business plan, determines the clientele that are attracted to CCResorts and analyses the effect of different variables on the expected expenditure of the customers. The statistical analysis yielded several significant conclusions discussed in terms of their implications for CCResorts. The sample meets with key performance indicator 1 with over 40% of guests staying the full week. There is sufficient evidence to suggest that over 40% of the total population also stay 7 days at CCResorts. On average, majority of customers do not spend more than $255 per day at the resort. Despite this, there are certain demographics that are more likely to achieve a higher expenditure per day. Firstly, the age of the guest impacted their daily expenditure with customers who were older tending to spend slightly more than their younger counterparts. Furthermore, guests who stayed in large groups had a greater likelihood of fulfilling the second key performance indicator. Customers with an income over $100 000 p.a were more inclined to spend more money in excess of accommodation costs.

When we hear about business statistics, when think about the decisions that a manager makes to help make his/her business successful. But do we really know what it takes to run a business on a statistical level? While some may think that business statistics is too much work because it entails a detailed decision making process that includes calculations, I feel that without educating yourself on the processes first you wouldn’t know how to imply statistics. This is a tool managers will need in order to run a successful business. In this paper I will review types of statistical elements like: Descriptive, Inferential, hypothesis development and testing and the evaluation of the results. Also I will discuss what I have learned from business statistics.
My description of Descriptive statistics is that they are the numerical elements that make up a data that can refer to an amount of a categorized description of an item such as the percentage that asks the question, “How many or how much does it take to “ and the outcome numerical amount. According to “Dr. Ashram’s Statistics site” “The quantities most commonly used to...

It is hard to really understand the “what” and “how” of today’s modern music with out stepping back and looking at it from a point of view of society as a whole. The “what” is still the same as in centuries past, which is "simply” the process of understanding the complex world of the human conscience. However, the “how” has recently changed due to instant global connectivity unfortunately making the answer: to do so in the quickest manner possible. Yet, knowing that the “what” has not altered over time then it is safe to say that music is still pursuing the understanding of what it is to be alive. So when you ask the question, “what happens when the music stops?” you are taking on the oldest question in human existence. That question being, what happens when we die? A person who is deceased is no longer a physical aspect of the world but his or her experiences will still live on through the people they have touched. This is a crazy idea considering none of this is at all real in a physical sense. Through this reasoning we can come to the assumption that music is the Rosetta Stone for our mind; taking the impossible to describe and making it tactile and thus able to be acted upon.
I believe the next stage in human existence is the pursuit of communication with our own subconscious. Modern...

REFLECTION
The first thing that puffs in my mind when I heard the word STATISTIC is that it was a very hard subject because it is another branch of mathematics that will make my head or brain bleed of thinking of how I will handle it. I have learned that statistic is a branch of mathematics concerned with the study of information that is expressed in numbers, for example information about the number of times something happens. As I examined on what the statement says, the phrase “number of times something happens” really caught my attention because my subconscious says “here we go again the non-stop solving, analyzing of problems” and I was right. This course of basic statistic has provided me with the analytical skills to crunch numerical data and to make inference from it. At first I thought that I will be alright all along with this subject but it seems that just some part of it maybe it is because I don’t pay much of my attention to it but I have learned many things. I have learned my lesson.
During our every session in this subject before having our midterm examination I really had hard and bad times in coping up with this subject. When we have our very first quiz I thought that I would fail it but it did not happen but after that, my next quizzes I have taken I failed. I was always feeling down when in every quiz I failed because even though I don’t...

INSTRUCTIONS: You are to work independently on this assignment. The total number of points possible is 50. Please note that point allocation varies per question. Use the Help feature in MINITAB 16 to read descriptions for the data sets so that you can make meaningful comments.
[10 pts] 1. Use the data set OPENHOUSE.MTW in the Student14 folder. Perform the Chi
Square test for independence to determine whether style of home and location are are related. Use α = 0.05. Explain your results.
Pearson Chi-Square = 37.159, DF = 3, P-Value = 0.000
Likelihood Ratio Chi-Square = 40.039, DF = 3, P-Value = 0.000
The P value associated with out chi square is 0.00 and the Alpha level is 0.05 so we reject the null hypothesis. The P- value is less than the alpha level. So, we conclude that style of homes and locations are not related.
[10 pts] 2. Use the data set TEMCO.MTW in the Student14 folder. Perform the Chi
Square test for independence to determine whether department and gender are related. Use α = 0.05. Explain your results.
Pearson Chi-Square = 1.005, DF = 3, P-Value = 0.800
Likelihood Ratio Chi-Square = 1.012, DF = 3, P-Value = 0.798
The P-value associated with out chi square is 0.800 and the Alpha level is 0.05 we can see that we are unable to reject the null hypothesis. The P- value is greater than the alpha level. So, we conclude that departments and gender are related..
