1.After several tries of measuring, Lydia gets the results of 2.75, 2.76, 2.30 cm. She realized that the results of measurement is closest to the actual measurement which is 3.25. What is the implication of her measurements? Is it Accurate and precise?
2.I measured the length of cabinet 3 times. The results of my measurements are 3.44 m, 3.55 m, 3.47 m. Afterwards, I compared it to the results with each other. What did I was trying to find out? Is it precision?

Step 1
“Since you have asked multiple questions, we will solve the first question for you. If you want any specific question to be solved, then please specify the question number or post only that question.”
Step 2
Difference between the calculated value and actual value of a quantity is called error. Difference in true value and individually measured value of a quantity is called absolute error. The mean of the data is termed as mean absolute error. .
Accuracy of a measurement is a measure of how much close the value measured to the actual value of quantity. Precision provides the measuring instrument resolution capability. Smaller least count greater will be the precision.
Let a1=2.75cm, a2=2.76cm, a3=2.30cm
Mean value of measurements
a=2.75+2.76+2.303
a=2.60cm
Actual measurement is 3.25 cm.
This difference can be due to instrumental error or personal error, it can be due to imperfection in performing the experiment or due to some external causes like temperature, pressure, humidity etc.

For a measure space ( X , E , μ ) we introduced the complete measure space E μ defined as:
E μ := { A P ( X )   |   B , C E  with  A B C  and  μ ( C ) = 0 }
and we define the corresponding complete measure as
μ ¯ 1 ( A ) = μ ( B )
On the internet I've found exclusively an alternative definition, for which we define
N := { N X   |   M E  mit  μ ( M ) = 0  und  N M }
and then the complete measure, I'll name it E ¯ is:
E ¯ := { D N   |   D E , N N }
and a measure
μ ¯ 2 ( D N ) = μ ( D )
I find it much easier to work with the alternative definition from the internet, and I was wondering what advantages the one from my professor would have. And secondly, if both are complete measure spaces with respect to E , is also E μ = E ¯ and μ 1 = μ 2 ? How could I start proving it?

Say we have a sequence of random variables ( X n ) with mean μ n and variance σ n 2 , that converges in probability towards a random variable X. Can we reason that mean and variance sequences are bounded? Do we need some other assumptions, for example, E ( | X | ) < , or perhaps if we assume that each X n is normal? Thank you in advance.

Let ( Ω , A , ν ) be a measure space. Show that if the measure over the space Ω is 0 < ν ( Ω ) < , then
Q = 1 ν ( Ω ) ν
is a probability measure.
I don't see how this is indeed a probability measure. For it to be a probability measure indeed it has to
1. Return values in [0,1].
2. Satisfy countable additivity.
3. Implied measure of should be 0.
The only thing I currently know is that ν is a measure and that it is finite (and greater than 0) over Ω. This one seems quite tough.

Consider a position measurement that is prone to a random error in any direction. This would mean that the position would be in a circle where the probability curve taken across the diameter would show a normal distribution.
How can the probability be calculated that the position measurement is inside another circle?
I can ignore the cases where the circle of probability is entirely inside the detection circle (because the probability of being in the detection circle has reached 100%) and when it is entirely outside the detection circle (probability falls to 0%), i.e. the cases where the two circles do not intersect.

I need to include measurement uncertainties in this testing process. So I have a theoretical value A that is stated without uncertainty. My measured data gives me this rate value B with uncerainty ΔB. It used to be validated (B was stated without uncertainty) as if B < const*A then test passes.
I found this consistensy check that is used for comparing values with uncertainties (if ∣A - B∣ ΔA + ΔB∣ is true, then the compared values are consistent with each other within experimental uncertainty), so that would mean that in my situation, I just need to make sure that the difference ∣A-B∣ is smaller than ΔB. 1st question - if it doesn't pass this consistency test, are there two not comparable?
And second, what should I do next? How do I compare const*A and B ± ΔB? I guess the core of the answer will be in overlaping errors, but couldn't have found much on it.

Loretta, who turns eighty this year, has just learned about blood pressure problems in the elderly and is interested in how her blood pressure compares to those of her peers. Specifically, she is interested in her systolic blood pressure, which can be problematic among the elderly. She has uncovered an article in a scientific journal that reports that the mean systolic blood pressure measurement for women over seventy-five is 133.0 mmHg, with a standard deviation of 5.1 mmHg.
Assume that the article reported correct information. Complete the following statements about the distribution of systolic blood pressure measurements for women over seventy-five.
a) According to Chebyshev's theorem, at least ?36%56%75%84% or 89% of the measurements lie between 122.8 mmHg and 143.2 mmHg.
b) According to Chebyshev's theorem, at least 8/9(about 89%) of the measurements lie between mmHg and mmHg. (Round your answer to 1 decimal place.)
