Quantitative methods...? **Quantitative** **methods** Unit **Quantitative** **methods** Research experts argue that **quantitative** research methodology, if used properly can produce valuable scientific research. Before making any arguments and conclusions, I will first define **quantitative** research methodology. **Quantitative** research is the systematic empirical investigation of social phenomena by the use of statistical, mathematical or computational techniques. On the other hand, scientific research is the body of techniques used for investigating phenomena, acquiring new knowledge or rectifying and integrating previous knowledge and information. For a **method** to qualify as a scientific **method**, anchorage of its assertions should be on empirical and measurable evidence... , which is...

Quantitative methods...Task The flow of process through the machine is shown in the figure below. Completion of the process requires completion of four independent tasksA, B, C and D in series. This means all the four components must be working for completion of the task.
Note that the chance of each component not breaking down is 5/6, 6/7, 7/8 and 8/9 respectively:
The chances of these components not breaking down are given below.
Component A P(A) = 5/6
Component B P(B) = 6/7
Component C P(C) = 7/8
Component D P(D) = 8/9
(i) Now let us calculate the probability P of the entire system working simultaneously
P = P(A and B and C and D not Breaking Down)
= P(A)*P(B)*P(C)*P(D)
=
This means the machine is 56% efficient. It means that there is 56... The flow of...

Quantitative finance..., graph and analyse your new findings.
Log (Cost per chip) = 974.96 -0.42x + c
From the scatter graph above, it is clear that some points are above the regression line while others fall below the regression line. The degree that some points will deviate from the regression line is represented by the constant (c) in the equation. Also, in chips produced leads to reduction in cost per chips, which is in line with the negative gradient from the equation.

Quantitative Methods...**QUANTITATIVE** **METHODS** By I. Problems Part Problem What influences the price of a second hand car?
In statistics, a confounding variable is an unrelated variable in a statistical structure that correlates, inversely or directly, with both the dependent and independent variables. A confounding variable, sometimes known as a mediator variable or a third variable, can adversely influence the correlation between the dependent variable and independent variable (Gravetter and Forzano 2012). This may make the researcher to scrutinize the results wrongly. The results may demonstrate a false correlation between the independent and dependent variables, resulting to an erroneous rejection of the null hypothesis.
