A point forecast is a single answer e.g. it is going to rain at 1pm. An interval forecast is based on uncertainity e.g. it is going to rain between 12pm and 2pm. An interval forecast is used because a forecast is always precisly wrong and appromatley right, y.e. don't give a precise answer because it will be wrong.
A prediction is what you think will happen BEFORE the experiment is followed through with, a conclusion is what you observe and conclude after the experiment has been completed.
a hypothesis is a scientific word for prediction. An opinion is something someone says that is not a fact.
Explanation is where you KNOW the topic and you can explain it. Predicting is where you want to know what will happen in the future.
theory- Studying something then making a prediction. Then you study a little bit more and thinking your THEORY was right. so theory and prediction are almost the same thing. Prediction- The difference between theory and prediction is that a prediction is a guess it isn't exactly right but you think it might happen. Evidence- Is what you need to make sure your THEORY is correct.
The difference between a earthquake forecast and an earthquake prediction us that an earth quake forecast is when people say whats gonna happen and a prediction is what scientist think what might happen.
The only difference is between a prediction made by a man and a prediction of God
Difference between observation, inference ,and prediction
A great amount of confusion seem to have grown up in the use of words 'forecast', 'prediction' and 'projection'. A prediction is an estimate based solely in past data of the series under investigation. It is purely mechanical extrapolation. A projection is a prediction where the extrapolated values are subjects to a certain numerical assumptions. A forecast is an estimate which relates the series in which we are interested to external factors. Forecasts are made by estimating future values of the external factors by means of prediction, projection or forecast and from these values calculating the estimate of the dependent variable.
what is sales forecast
Confidence interval considers the entire data series to fix the band width with mean and standard deviation considers the present data where as prediction interval is for independent value and for future values.
What are the difference's between contour interval and index contour?
the contour interval is the difference in elevation between contour lines that are next to each other
difference b/w anticipation and prediction
prediction is when you do not know what will happen but you guess that it will happen. observation is when you see something
The class interval for each interval is the difference between its upper limit and its lower limit.
