Step 1
Introduction:
Quantitative variable:
The values of the quantitative variable will be measured on numerical scale. The arithmetic operations produce meaningful results for the quantitative variables. The values of the variables will be displayed as numbers. A quantitative data contains measured numerical values with measurement units.
Categorical variable:
Qualitative variable categories each individual to corresponding groups. It is used for classification of individuals based on some attributes or qualities or characteristics. Categorical variable is also called as qualitative variable or nominal variable. In other words it can be said that, a variable that is used for classification of individuals based on some attributes or qualities or characteristics are called categorical or qualitative variable.
Qualitative data are non-numerical measures such as characteristics, attributes or labels.
Step 2
Explanation:
From the above definition of quantitative variable, it is clear that the quantitative data are displayed in numbers and these data are measurements of numerical variables.
Thus, quantitative data are measurements of numerical variables and are displayed as numerical values.
Hence, Option (D) is correct.
The other options (A, B, C) contradict the definition of quantitative variable.

I was reading a paper, and they wrote μ ( f ) where μ is a measure and f a function. I know measures map sets to nonnegative numbers, but I don't know what it means to write μ ( f ).

Consider a complete, finite measure space ( X , M , μ ). Let { f n } n = 1 L 1 ( μ ) be a sequence such that sup n | f n | d μ < . Furthermore, assume that for every ε > 0 there exists δ > 0 such that E | f n | d μ < ε whenever μ ( E ) < δ. I want to show the followings:
( a )   sup n { | f n | M } | f n | d μ 0  as  M .
( b )   sup n { | f n | δ } | f n | d μ 0  as  δ 0.
I have the following proof for (a):
Let E = { x X : | f n ( x ) | M }. By Chebyshev's inequality,
μ ( E ) 1 M X | f n | d μ   n N .
Since μ ( E ) 0 as M , δ > 0, μ ( E ) < δ and therefore,
E | f n | d μ < ε .
Since this is true for all ε > 0 and n N ,
E | f n | d μ = { | f n | M } | f n | d μ 0  as  M .
Taking the supremum on the left-hand side, we get
sup n { | f n | M } | f n | d μ 0  as  M .
I wonder if my proof is coorect, and for (b), I wonder how to show that the measure of the set { | f n | δ } is small so that a similar argument can be stated as in (a)?

An equivalence relation is a binary relation that fulfills reflexivity, symmetry and transitivity.
A partially ordered set is a set equipped with a binary relation that fulfills reflexivity, antisymmetry and transitivity.
For a partially ordered set, some elements of the set might be incomparable, i.e. x y or y x may both not hold. That's why we use the term"partially". An example would be as a binary relation and the set M:={{1},{2},{1,2}}. Obviously, {1} and {2} are incomparable.
Question: Can also elements of a set, equipped with an equivalence relation, be incomparable?

I have two questions regarding uncertainties in measurements.
First, if I have some measured value for x with an uncertainty ± e, what would be the uncertainty in sin x, ± sin e?
Then, if I have a range of values from 30 to 46, can I include an uncertainty value of ± 2? Even if it’s not wrong from a mathematical point of view, would it be unsuitable in a physics laboratory report?

I have to find a sequence { f k } k = 1 , with f k : N [ 0 , ), such that lim k f k ( n ) = 0 for all n N and N f k d μ = 1 for all k N , where μ is the counting measure, i.e. n = 1 f k ( n ) = 1 for all k N .
My main attempt was to write f k ( n ) = 1 k 2 n , what gives me lim k f k ( n ) = 0 for all n N , but n = 1 f k ( n ) = 1 k 1 if k 1, then it is not valid. The two conditions seem to be incompatible.

Assume that X is uniformly distributed on (0, 1) and that the conditional distribution of Y given X=x is a binomial distribution with parameters (n,x). Then we say that Y has a binomial distribution with fixed size n and random probability parameter.
I have to find the marginal distribution of Y. So I have to use that:
P ( Y = y ) = x = y P ( Y = y | X = x ) P ( X = x )
But when we have that X is uniformly distributed I think the sum becomes a integral so we get:
P ( Y = y ) = 0 1 ( n y ) x y ( 1 x ) n y d x
But what to do next? I think maybe take the binomial coefficient out from the integral, but how then using this to find the marginal distribution of Y? Hope anyone can help me? Do I also have to use that Y has a binomial distribution with fixed size n and random probability parameter?
