## A course in business statisticsThis text offers comprehensive coverage with ample material and flexibility for both one- and two-term introduction to business statistics courses offered at the undergraduate and MBA level (high school algebra prerequisite). Case studies open chapters to motivate the subject matter and are revisited at the chapter's end with questions that require the student to analyze and interpret the problem and to make decisions. Computer output and graphics (including Minitab "RM", Excel and SAS) are used throughout the text as a pedagogical aid to focus the student on understanding and interpreting results. The authors focus on the application of statistics to real business problems. The book includes a data disk bound into each new copy of the text with relevant data from examples and exercises formatted for major statistical packages |
