Unit 14 Statistics Exercise 14.1, 14.2, 14.3, 14.4 Solutions

Mathematical statistics is the application of mathematics to statistics, which was originally conceived as the science of the state - the collection and analysis of facts about a country: its economy, land, military, population, and so forth. Mathematical techniques which are used for this include mathematical analysis, linear algebra, stochastic analysis, differential equations, and measure-theoretic probability theory.
