    I have an essay to write, about this statistics problem. I have used several calculation methods and I have no idea where to begin with this problem. I am having difficulty as is with this class. Could you please break down the problem step by step and please explain why I would go with that option to resolve the problem. I have a real problem with why I should do this and that with statistics.
