This part of the quote, "The formulation of a problem is far more often essential than its solution, which may be merely a matter of mathematical or experimental skill" illustrates the following which I want you to expand on: 1) Planning and Designing is often the most important step of s research process. The way you design and collect your data is more important than the analysis of the data and subsequent interpretation of the result of the analyses.
