    Im really suck/late with Stats coursework any one able to help, im not saying i want people to tell me the answers (though i wouldnt complain) but i need someone to explain how i do things... Here goes.

    </TABLE> [
    I then did -

    6 x 60 (the total of d2)
    divided by
    5 x (25-1)

    360 (which is 6 x 60)
    divided by
    120 (the total of 5 x 24)

    360
    divided by
    120

    3

    1-3 = 2 or -2?!

    What have i done wrong?! or is it right, if so why ?!
