let us briefly discuss some of the important functions of statistics. 1. Presents facts in. simple form: Statistics presents facts and figures in a definite form. That ma…kes the statement logical and convincing than mere description. It condenses the whole mass of figures into a single figure. This makes the problem intelligible. 2. Reduces the Complexity of data: Statistics simplifies the complexity of data. The raw data are unintelligible. We make them simple and intelligible by using different statistical measures. Some such commonly used measures are graphs, averages, dispersions, skewness, kurtosis, correlation and regression etc. These measures help in interpretation and drawing inferences. Therefore, statistics enables to enlarge the horizon of one's knowledge. 3. Facilitates comparison: Comparison between different sets of observation is an important function of statistics. Comparison is necessary to draw conclusions as Professor Boddington rightly points out." the object of statistics is to enable comparison between past and present results to ascertain the reasons for changes, which have taken place and the effect of such changes in future. So to determine the efficiency of any measure comparison is necessary. Statistical devices like averages, ratios, coefficients etc. are used for the purpose of comparison. 4. Testing hypothesis: Formulating and testing of hypothesis is an important function of statistics. This helps in developing new theories. So statistics examines the truth and helps in innovating new ideas. 5. Formulation of Policies : Statistics helps in formulating plans and policies in different fields. Statistical analysis of data forms the beginning of policy formulations. Hence, statistics is essential for planners, economists, scientists and administrators to prepare different plans and programmes. 6. Forecasting : The future is uncertain. Statistics helps in forecasting the trend and tendencies. Statistical techniques are used for predicting the future values of a variable. For example a producer forecasts his future production on the basis of the present demand conditions and his past experiences. Similarly, the planners can forecast the future population etc. considering the present population trends. 7. Derives valid inferences : Statistical methods mainly aim at deriving inferences from an enquiry. Statistical techniques are often used by scholars planners and scientists to evaluate different projects. These techniques are also used to draw inferences regarding population parameters on the basis of sample information. (MORE)

Functions of Statistics: Statistics can be used for various purposes. 1) Simplification of mass data: Simplification of complex data and decision making for Managers has bec…ome easier by using various statistical concepts such as Sample, Population, Variance, Standard Deviation, etc. The Statistical concepts help in reducing the complexity of data and consequently in the understanding of the huge mass of data. 2) Easier Comparison: Statistical methods & Concepts makes collection of data easier which otherwise would have been difficult. The Various Statistical methods and concepts also helps in the Comparison of data thus collected from different sources. Grand totals, measures of central tendency, measures of dispersion, graphs and diagrams, coefficient of correlation all provide ample sources of comparison. Visual representation of numerical data like Pie Chart makes Comparison of data much easier and aids in effective decision making. 3) Brings out trends and tendencies in the data: After data is collected, it is easy to analyse the trend and tendencies in the data by using various concepts of Statistics. 4) Brings out the hidden relations between Variables: Statistical analysis helps in drawing conclusions / Inferences on data. Such analysis also helps in bringing out the hidden relations between Variable. 5) Decision making power becomes easier: With the proper application of Statistics and Statistical software packages on the collected data, managers can take effective decisions, which results in increased profitability of business. - Shashi (MORE)

Quantum mechanics deals with things on the atomic and subatomic level. Statistical mechanics deals with large systems, on the order of 10^23 particles. So those are currently …mutually exclusive areas of physics. That is not to say that one day that issue will be rectified, but as of current there is no overlap. Answer I disagree. Statistical mechanics explains the connection between the very small and the not-so-small things. It explains large-scale properties, such as energy, temperature, pressure, current, etc. in terms of the movements of particles at an atomic scale. Statistical mechanics was first formulated in the 19th century, before quantum mechanics, and was built on classical mechanics; however, it has also been done for quantum mechanics. (MORE)

In the days of MS-DOS, Microsoft deemed that no single hard drive would ever need more than four file systems at once. So in order to make things simple, Microsoft only ga…ve hard drives the capability to hold 4 partitions (at this time they were simply called 'partitions', instead of their modern term 'primary partitions') However, there came a need for drives with more than four partitions. What Microsoft did is they added the ability to add a second partition table. In order for MS-DOS to remain backwards compatible, they placed this second partition table in a place pointed to by the the fourth partition of the original table. This new 'extra partition table' is called an Extended partition, and it acts like a container for additional partitions which can fit inside of it (called Logical partitions) In this way it's possible to have more than 4 partitions by having 3 primary parititions as well as an extended partition which can contain several logical partitions which will also show up as drives on your computer.
