FIGURES!

Postby TwinkleK » Wed Apr 03, 2013 10:12 pm

Hey guys,
Just need some help with this please...

28.3 + 12.3
(the plus and minus symbol...weren't sure how to do this, so I've just underlined it!!!)

What does this mean???
And most importantly how do I get this figure?

NB: Maybe..has it got anything to do with graphs...?

Thanks, all help appreciated:)
Love, Peace & Freedom..

It looks like a calculated value that is pretty uncertain - basically, 28.3 is the number, but it could be as low as 16.0 (28.3 - 12.3) or as high as 40.6 (28.3 + 12.3).

12.3 shows the "measurement accuracy". Measurement accuracy is the smallest unit on a measuring appliance. It means that the musearing appliance cannot discriminate between 16 and 40.6 (in this measurement).So the exact result may differ between 16 and 40.6. In other words reault=[16,40.6].

28.3 is the mean; 12.3 is the standard error

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
