Description not set

The average of a group of numbers (which is sometimes called the 'mean') represents the balancing point or middle of the data. It is found by adding together all of the individual data values and dividing by the sample size.

For example, I ask five friends how many children they have, and I get the answers: 0, 1, 2, 4, and 1. The total number of children is 0 + 1 + 2 + 4 + 1 = 8 and there are 5 friends, so the average number of children per friend is 8 ÷ 5 = 1.6. This has been r

The Origins of the Revolution: Marx and Eastern Europe [Audio]
Speaker(s): Professor Timothy Snyder | Marx and Engels tended to be romantics about East European liberation from imperial rule in the nineteenth century, but the period of nominally Marxist rule in the twentieth is one of oppression. The theorists imagined a revolution that would spread from Germany to the East, yet history brought a revolution that arose in Russia and then spread to the West.

This means that, using appropriate growth hormones and other tissue culture techniques, a single infected p
