Lesson 28 — Statistics

####
Statistics are sets of mathematical equations that are used to
analyze what is happening in the world around us. You've heard that today we live in the Information Age where we understand a great deal about the world around us. Much of this information was determined mathematically by using
statistics. When used correctly,
statistics tell us any trends in what happened in the past and can be useful in predicting what may happen in the future.
