Re: Re: Jack--About Mac's Stats

Dear Jack,

Dear Doug,

I made a typo too (.267 vs. .268)--my mistake. But when hr frequency is recorded in statistic books, it is usually rounded to the nearest hundreth, so, if you round the figure off, I am statistically correct on the frequency.

However, a year makes a big difference. We all make mistakes. I am just trying to correct a statistical mistake by Jack, just as you corrected me.

My mistake was forgetting to round the .267 avg. to the nearest thousandth too!

We can all learn from each other.
