Remember that these are only potential answers not divinely inspired solutions!! Remember also that hand calculated answers will differ (sometimes significantly) from answers shown in screen dumps from software. In Chapter 2, especially, where we are dividing statistics by n instead of n1 answers can be very different, depending on the size of n (obviously?). Less than that and it is probably calculator, PC or spreadsheet precision.

Preface
Chapter 1 Introduction
Chapter 2 Why a statistical approach?
Chapter 3 Normal distributions
Page 48: calculation
of confidence for the standard deviation at the top of page should read:
Page 49:
Last paragraph at bottom of page should read:
That is, our best
estimate for μ is 16.941 %Ash and we can be 95% confident that the true
mean lies between 16.345 and 17.537 %Ash
Page 58:
half way down the page, calculation should be:
Page 85:
the two lines below the figure for Q11 should read:
We will continue the exercise on the
(erroneous) assumption of Normality. For a central 95% confidence interval on the
true unknown population mean:
Chapter 4 Lognormal distributions (and others)
Page 120: tables at the top of the page should look like this:
Page 120: Fourth paragraph of text should read . has a mean of zero and a standard deviation of 1, .
Chapter 5 Discrete distributions
Page 154:
the final answer to question 3, should be:
There
appears to be some confusion between the subscripts on the sample statistics
and those on the degrees of freedom for the F test. It is necessary to divide
the larger variance by the smaller to use Table 5(a) and (b). However, degrees
of freedom ν_{1} refers
to the degrees of freedom attached to the top line of the ratio not to the first set of samples. Similarly ν_{2}
refers to the degrees of freedom relevant to the bottom line of the ration, not necessarily to the second set of
samples. Sorry about this, standard notation!

Table of t values in the centre of the
page should read:
Page 173:
answer for t statistic should be 6.313.
Chapter 8 The Spatial aspect
Page 206:
horrific spreadsheet calculation error on Isobels part!!! Table and paragraph
at the bottom of the page should read:
Chapter 10 Estimation and Kriging
Chapter 12 Other kriging approaches
Table 1
has been mislabelled. Headings for probability column should read F not f. Apologies for
all confusion.
