Step 1
Standard unit of measurement such as using meters as measurement of length provides a clear insight universally the association of certain object in terms of measurement.
Step 2
Meters for the measurement of length , where as grams/ kilograms for the measurement of weight gives standard measure which everyone can understand easily.
Standard measurement is reference to everyone to understand in a better way.
When we measure length in terms of hands or steps and if there are two different persons measuring it then the result by two different individuals will be different as it is not a standard form of measurement - considered here in this case if one individual is adult and other is kid.

Determine which of the four levels of measurement (nominal, ordinal, interval, ratio) is most appropriate for the data below.
Class times measured in minutes
A. The nominal level of measurement is most appropriate because the data cannot be ordered.
B. The interval level of measurement is most appropriate because the data can be ordered, differences (obtained by subtraction) can be found and are meaningful, and there is no natural starting point.
C. The ratio level of measurement is most appropriate because the data can be ordered, differences can be found and are meaningful, and there is a natural starting zero point.
D. The ordinal level of measurement is most appropriate because the data can be ordered, but differences (obtained by subtraction) cannot be found or are meaningless.

Definition:
Let ( X , A , μ ) be a measurable space, an atom of the measure μ is a set A A with the property that μ ( A ) > 0 and for any B σ ( A ) either μ ( B ) = 0, or μ ( A B ) = 0. If a measure has atoms it is called atomic; in the opposite case, the measure is called non-atomic (or atomeless). A measure is called purely atomic if X can be written as the union of a finite or countable number of atoms.
From the definition of atoms, we get the following corollary:
Corollary:
Every purely atomic measure is an atomic measure.
I am trying to find an example of an atomic measure that is not purely atomic, can anyone help me?

For a compact subset X R n and a continuous function f : X C , f is integrable on X ( as both X and f will be bounded). Does this generalise? That is, if X is a compact measure space and f : X C is a continuous function, under which circumstances (i.e. under which assumptions on the topology of X and under which assumptions on the measure on X) is it true that f is integrable on X? Thanks for any help!

'Note that a sample of random variables (i.e. a set of measurable functions) must not be confused with the realizations of these variables (which are the values that these random variables take). In other words, X i is a function representing the measurement at the i-th experiment and x i = X i ( ω ) is the value we actually get when making the measurement.''
I'm afraid I don't understand this passage, can anybody please explain the point?

Why would standard z having no units of measurements be desirable for comparing data sets with different units of measurements?

The length of a rod was measured eight times. The measurements in centimeters, in the order they were taken, were 21.20, 21.22, 21.25, 21.26, 21.28, 21.30, 21.32, 21.35.
a) Do these measurements appear to be a random sample from a population of possible measurements? Why or why not?
b) Is it possible to estimate the uncertainty in these measurements? Explain.
