CON 170 Fundamentals of Cost and Price Analysis CON 170, Unit 2 Quantitative Methods for Contract Pricing37The purpose of this lesson has been to highlight some basic ways of analysis simple sets of data. To recap, key values are easily calculated: Mean= Sum of the observations divided by the number of observations. Median= After rank ordering the observations - the middle value or the average of the middle two if there is an even number of observations Range= Subtraction of the Minimum from the Maximum Distributionof a set of numbers can be described in several different ways: -The Center can be described by either mean, median, and mode -Shape is commonly categorized into four common distributions: normal, right skew (tail to the right), left skew (tail to the left), or multi-modal -Spread can be basically described by the range calculating the difference between the maximum and minimum -Trend: Even with data properly normalized for content, quantity, and economics; certain size and/or performance attributes may also help explain prices when faced with wider spreads (high range) and/or multi-modal

• 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.
