### What does maxemina mean?

There is in math a set known as a minimax, and the corresponding set called maximin. And also maximax and minimin. Of the set of values momentarily peaking (of a varying signal or data set), the minimax is the lowest of that set of maximum. Similarly the maximin is the highest value of the set of minima signals. The set of values lying between these represent the smallest variations from the mean. Maximax and minimin…

### What is the math definition for lower extreme?

The lower extreme is the lowest number in a set of data * * * * * That is the correct conventional definition. However, for the mathematical definition you may have to allow for the fact that the lower extreme may not actually be attained: it may be an asymptotic value. For example, consider the set of numbers 1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8 and so on. The sequence gets closer to 0 as you keep going…

### What does a p value of 0.66 tell us?

A p-value is the probability of obtaining a test statistic as extreme or more extreme than the one actually obtained if the null hypothesis were true. If this p-value is less than the level of significance (usually set by the experimenter as .05 or .01), we reject the null hypothesis. Otherwise, we retain the null hypothesis. Therefore, a p-value of 0.66 tell us not to reject the null hypothesis.

### What is the middle value in Excel?

The middle value of a set of numbers that are in order is known as the median. If the amount of numbers is odd, there will be a middle number. If the amount is even, then the median is the value halfway between the two middle numbers. Excel has a function called MEDIAN to get the median. The middle value of a set of numbers that are in order is known as the median. If…

### How do you find the greatest value in a data set?

Put the first item in the data set into an empty memory location called, say, 'biggest'. Now compare the second and subsequent items in the data set with 'biggest'. If the item is larger than 'biggest' then put the value of the item in 'biggest', otherwise do nothing. By the time you have finished looking through the data set you will find that 'biggest' contains the greatest value in the data set.

### What does the critical value represent?

The critical value is used to test a null hypothesis against an alternative hypothesis at some pre-defined level of significance. A test statistic is calculated from the outcomes of a set of trials and if this test statistic is more extreme than the critical value then the null hypothesis must be rejected in favour of the alternative.

### Does the formula bar in Excel display the value or formula of an active cell?

It displays what is called the Cell Contents. The Cell Contents are what was originally typed into the cell. If that is only a value, then it displays the value. If it is a formula, then you will see the formula that was entered. In the cell itself you will normally see the result of that formula, unless the worksheet has been set to show the formulas. It displays what is called the Cell Contents…

### Which type of natural selection increases the frequency of an extreme phenotype?

This type of natural selection is called directional selection and does not display a normal curve of expressed traits, but a heavy set of data to the left of the curve that indicates the direction of selection of the extreme phenotype. Disruptive selection is where two extreme phenotypes are maintained in a population. This curve looks like a two humped camel in it's expression of these extreme traits.
