N(0, 9).Assume ui ? N(0, 9), that is, ui are normally distributed with mean 0 and variance 9. Generate 10 sets of64 observations on ui from the given normal distribution and use the 64 observations on X given in Table 2, to generate 100 sets of the estimated ? coefficients (each set will have the two estimated parameters). Takethe averages of each of the estimated ? coefficients and relate them to the true values of these coefficientsgiven above. What overall conclusion do you draw?1

Encryption is present in all aspects of information technology. Any information that you want to keep secret should be encrypted, and only the intended recipient should have the key to decrypt.For as long as ciphers have existed to encrypt information, hackers have existed who attempt to crack the key and illicitly decipher the message.In this discussion, you will first encrypt information using a linear cipher. Then, you will become the hacker and discuss ways to crack one anothers messages.For this Discussion:Write a short message of between 15 and 40 characters to your classmates. Encode it using a linear affine cipher with n=26. Post the message to the Encrypted Messages thread but do not give the a and b that you utilized.Also post your own initial response thread in which you propose at least one way that you might try to decipher messages without the key.
Think first of a network of roads for GPS mapping. Every road whether in a neighborhood or spanning states is included in possible paths. A dirt road is included in the overall network just like a major highway. Clearly, it is impossible to consider every possible path in every GPS mapping decision. If traveling from your house to the nearest grocery store, it is absurd to consider paths that go through another city 800 miles away. If driving from the Empire State building in New York City to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, a dirt road in Iowa might be close to on the way but doesnt need to be considered as a path.The Internet is similar to that mesh of roads with connections ranging from local cable lines to submarine optical cables traversing thousands of kilometers. Just like with the roads, not all possible paths in the network need to be considered for every packet route.Consider methods to narrow down these paths for GPS mapping or mesh network routing. What strategies and processes might be applied to have a computer algorithmically do what a person glancing at a map does naturally?For this Discussion:Choose either the GPS map routing or the Internet routing. Describe an algorithm for quickly determining the best path to take within such a broad mesh. Provide an example to show how the algorithmic process would determine a specific route for an automobile or data packet.
Your population is thriving on your island. The data you have collected now needs to be displayed and further analyzed. Use the charts you created in the probability portion in weeks 1-3 for this part of the project. Always show your calculations or explain how you used technology. Take a picture of your calculator if you used that or submit your excel worksheet.1. a. Create a Scatter Plot using the total population for each of the years from the Probability Island. The horizontal axis should always represent time.b. Use linear regression or a trendline in Excel to find the equation of the best fit line.c. Find the Correlation Coefficient. Explain what this means for your data.d. Use the equation to predict the population in year 20.2. a. Use the first and last data points of the total population for each of the years from the Probability Island to find a linear equation to model the data.b. Graph the equation.c. Compare the slope of the Linear Regression Line of question 1 with the slope of this line. Provide an explanation of why they may similar or differ.d. Use the equation to predict the population in year 20.3. a. Assume that (0,150) represents the vertex of a quadratic equation. Find a quadratic equation using the tenth-year population as another point.b. Graph the equation.c. Use the equation to predict the population in year 20.4. Using the equation y = 2×2 -9x +4, explain and demonstrate how to find the x-intercepts, the y-intercept, the axis of symmetry, and the vertex of a quadratic equation.
Comparison of Cumulative Distribution Functions for cost associated with Contract A andContract Ba) What are the realistic maximum and minimum costs associated with each of the contracts?[4 marks]b) Which contract is associated with a higher probability of a cost less than £8 million? Whichcontract is associated with a higher probability of a cost greater than £11 million?[2 marks]c) If your decision was based on minimizing the expected value of the cost, which contractwould you choose?

Payday LoansPayday loans are high-interest short-term loans, usually over a period of two weeks. One recurring political question is whether or not interest rates on such loans should be capped. Roughly speaking, those in favor of caps want to protect consumers from potentially harmful loans, while those against caps want to let the free market determine what the rate should be.1.)
