b. What scale of measurement is milk production (nominal, ordinal, interval, or ratio)?
c. Explain why you choose this scale of measurement.
d. What are the measures of Central Tendency and which measure should be used to represent milk production?
e. Explain why you choose this measure of Central Tendency.
f. What are measures of Dispersion used for and which one should be used for milk production?
g. Explain why you choose this measure of Dispersion.
h. Develop a Cumulative Frequency Distribution.
