**21. **CONCLUSION
In describing data by use of a summary measure, it is important to select the measure of central tendency that most accurately represents the data. A key factor is to determine of the data are symmetrical or skewed. Data are most commonly represented by two summary measures ? one to indicate central tendency and one to indicate variation. The most commonly used pair is the arithmetic mean and the standard deviation.

**58. **CONCLUSION
Probability measures the likelihood that a particular event will or will not occur. In a long series of trials, probability is the ration of the number of favorable outcomes to the total number of equally likely outcomes. Permutations and combinations are useful in determining the number of outcomes. If compound events are involved, we need to select and apply the addition rule or the multiplication rule to compute probabilities. The outcome of an experiment together with its respective probabilities constitutes a probability distribution. One very common probability distribution is the binomial distribution. It presents the probabilities of various numbers of successes in trials where there are only two possible outcomes to each trial.
