Write the Different Ways of Measuring Angles The custom of measuring angles using degrees, with 360 in a circle, dates back to the ancient
Babylonians, who used a number system based on groups of 60. Another system of measuring angles divides the circle into 400 units, called grads. In this system a right angle is 100 grad, so this fits in with our base 10 number system.
Write a short essay comparing the advantages and disadvantages of these two systems and the radian system of measuring angles. Which system do you prefer?

There are three systems for the measurements of angles. That is,
(1) Sexagesimal system (unit is degree)
(2) Centesimal system (unit is grade)
(3) Radian or circular measure (unit is radian)
The comparisons between three systems are as follows:
Sexagesimal system: In this system, one right angle is equal to the 90 degrees (1 right angle =90 degrees), one degree is equal to 60 minutes (1=60 minutes) and one minute is equal to the 60 seconds (1 minute=60 seconds).
Centesimal system: In this system, one right angle is equal to the 100 grades, one grade is equal to 100 minutes and one minute is equal to the 100.
Radian system! In this system, one right angle is equal to the 90 degrees (1right angle=90 degrees), one degree is equal to π180, radians and one minute is equal to the 60 seconds (1 minute=60 seconds).
πradian=180=200g
The circular system or radian system is more preferable, because it gives the equivalence relation between other two systems.

I have two questions about the properties of binary set operations that I am having difficulty arriving at answers that I completely trust (though I am sure they are not difficult questions). Here they are:
1. Of the 16 binary operations on subsets satisfy the idempotent law? -Clearly the answer is at least 2, but binary operations P and Q are idempotent as well, correct?
2. Under how many of the 16 binary operations on the subsets of a set do the latter form a group? -I am not really sure how to solve this question.

Give a full and correct answer Why is it important that a sample be random and representative when conducting hypothesis testing? Representative Sample vs. Random Sample: An Overview Economists and researchers seek to reduce sampling bias to near negligible levels when employing statistical analysis. Three basic characteristics in a sample reduce the chances of sampling bias and allow economists to make more confident inferences about a general population from the results obtained from the sample analysis or study: * Such samples must be representative of the chosen population studied. * They must be randomly chosen, meaning that each member of the larger population has an equal chance of being chosen. * They must be large enough so as not to skew the results. The optimal size of the sample group depends on the precise degree of confidence required for making an inference. Representative sampling and random sampling are two techniques used to help ensure data is free of bias. These sampling techniques are not mutually exclusive and, in fact, they are often used in tandem to reduce the degree of sampling error in an analysis and allow for greater confidence in making statistical inferences from the sample in regard to the larger group. Representative Sample A representative sample is a group or set chosen from a larger statistical population or group of factors or instances that adequately replicates the larger group according to whatever characteristic or quality is under study. A representative sample parallels key variables and characteristics of the large society under examination. Some examples include sex, age, education level, socioeconomic status (SES), or marital status. A larger sample size reduced sampling error and increases the likelihood that the sample accurately reflects the target population. Random Sample A random sample is a group or set chosen from a larger population or group of factors of instances in a random manner that allows for each member of the larger group to have an equal chance of being chosen. A random sample is meant to be an unbiased representation of the larger population. It is considered a fair way to select a sample from a larger population since every member of the population has an equal chance of getting selected. Special Considerations: People collecting samples need to ensure that bias is minimized. Representative sampling is one of the key methods of achieving this because such samples replicate as closely as possible elements of the larger population under study. This alone, however, is not enough to make the sampling bias negligible. Combining the random sampling technique with the representative sampling method reduces bias further because no specific member of the representative population has a greater chance of selection into the sample than any other.
