Please Discuss here about this GDB.Thanks
Our main purpose here discussion not just Solution
We are here with you hands in hands to facilitate your learning and do not appreciate the idea of copying or replicating solutions.
This information is not enough for him i.e to know about average depth only.4.5 feet is average depth of canal.it means there may be variation in depths at certain places.somewhere depth may be 6 feet.and then depth may suddenly decrease.if depth is more than his height somewhere then he will not be able to cross the canal.he needs to know about variation in depths.statistically speaking he needs to know about measure of dispersion.as we are concerned with average(mean) depth here and in common life we mostly talk about arithmetic mean.so he needs to know about mean deviation.this measure will tell him dispersion of values around mean.he also needs to know about range which is difference of minimum value Xo and extreme value Xm.
Students explain the possibilities of this situation in your own words using several techniques related this subject.
And try to express your ideas briefly and to the point.
A person who is 5 feet tall if he swims through the river he would be 7 inches out of the water.
Well think about it and do your level best!
Dear Students Don’t wait for solution post your problems here and discuss ... after discussion a perfect solution will come in a result. So, Start it now, replies here give your comments according to your knowledge and understandings....
Distance is also required in case to cross the river.
So try to catch up some more points to make your ideas clear.
Best of luck!
And discuss your ideas here!
Plz share solution. STAT kuch samaj ni araha,
Man need Maxi-ma Value, because in average (Mean, median, mode , HM, Am.) all valuse included, may be Maximum values increases than his hight
ye hm idr discus to krty ha pr gdb pr kesy kry gy plz tariq ye bhi bta do.tanx
