The standard floating-point variable in C++ is its larger sibling, the double-precision floating point or simply double. You declare a double-precision floating point as follows: double dValue1; double dValue2 = 1.5; The limitations of the int variable in C++ are unacceptable in some applications.
Measures of Central Tendency Introduction. A measure of central tendency is a single value that attempts to describe a set of data by identifying the central position within that set of data. As such, measures of central tendency are sometimes called measures of central location. They are also classed as summary statistics.
In statistics, dispersion (also called variability, scatter, or spread) is the extent to which a distribution is stretched or squeezed. Common examples of measures of statistical dispersion are the variance, standard deviation, and interquartile range.
Both percentiles and quartiles are statistical measures of position; that is, they do not measure a central tendency or a spread (dispersion), but instead measure location in a data set. (The exact definition of a percentile and quartile differs; these differences, however, tend to be minor and are focused on certain fine points.
