For homework #7 work problems 4.27 and 4.47. These problems are due on September 28th. Please note that in problem 4.27 the headings for the columns of data are reversed. Also in the square root heading in the denominator the “n” is really the Greek symbol “nu” which sort of looks like this v. Make sure you prepare a real computer generated graph that compares equation 4.66 to these data.
