If you began walking along one of Earth’s lines of longitude and walked until you had changed latitude by 1 minute of arc (there are 60 minutes per degree), how far would you have walked (in miles)? This distance is called “nautical mile.”

The Coefficient of Variation: C.V. = S / x(bar) X(bar) Mean of data Examples: #1 X(bar) 54 ft S 26 ft C.V. = S / x(bar) = 26/54 = .48 or 48% #2 X(bar) 2 hours S 2.7 hours C.V. = 2.7 / 2 = 1.35 NOTICE: the units cancel when you divide the two numbers, therefore the answer does not have units!! Chebyster’s Theorem: For any set of numbers with mean x(bar) and standard...
