Height happens to be a physical characteristic that may play in role in having an advantage. If being taller does in fact give a player an advantage, then why not just hire the tallest players you can in order to get the biggest advantage?

Task:

The main purpose of this investigation is to determine whether or not there is a relationship between the height of the players in the NBA and...

Dear noble tribe leaders of T-Island, I have created a brand-new system of units for us to use in our daily lives called the T-Dog system. You will find this system to be quite useful, as it includes six unique units which measure temperature, length, time, weight/mass, volume/displacement, and currency. By utilizing these units, life will be made easier for us. Moreover, if it is ever decided to switch to...
