The guess that is done is either determined by observation, beliefs, and experiences. These aspects are then used to make a conclusion about certain events. In statistics, these guesses are termed as a hypothesis but they are not termed like that in our daily lives. In other words, the hypothesis is the relationship that exists between the dependent variable and the independent variable. The hypothesis can be tested and are therefore based on some justifiable and sound rationale that is obtained from a certain event. The end analysis is therefore used to predict the outcome of the case that we are looking at.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
