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...

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.
