As has been stated, in experimental work units in a sample drawn from a parent population and the observations made on them are subject to error, and our task for which we use statistics is to make useful statements about the properties of the parent population. To achieve this, the most important statistics are the mean and the standard deviation. This section, therefore, considers the obtaining of sample means and standard deviations and confidence limits for them in situations where the parent population is normally distributed.

Personal computers came about because the huge improvements in computer technology allowed the production of a machine which can sit, complete, on a desk, but which has power greater than the mainframe machines of a decade ago. ) The presence of the computer on the desk, with an impressive array of available software, encouraged a situation in which the users were often repeating tasks being performed by colleagues (especially the inputting of data). One description of the development as it affected the functioning of an organization was that it was leading to near anarchy with little managerial control of what was happening to the benefit of the organization.

5 Successive integration This is the reverse process from that of successive differentiation, each cycle of operations consisting of the integration of the function resulting from the immediately previous integration. In general terms instructions to carry out successive integration are expressed thus: >> = f ff f/(*) dx, dx, dx, dx, which means integration is to be successively carried out 4 times with respect to x. Another form of successive integration is v = JJJ/(x, y, z) dx, dy, dz; referred to as a volume integral.
