Finally, if you have any questions or need any clarifications, please email or make appointment to discuss.
THE DATA
The report is a summary of your work on the three data sets you have been assigned to analyze. The original data has been provided in a form of an Excel spreadsheet, where data sets are arranged as columns. Data in each of the columns has been generated from a different probability distribution each.
REPORT STRUCTURE
