### Summary

Elementary Statistics - With CD by Mario F. Triola is dedicated to finding new real-world examples and data sets that make sense for today's reader. This 11th edition text is no exception leading the market as the premier introductory statistics textbook. Engaging readers, Triola includes more than 2000 exercises, 87% of which are new, and 82% of which use real data. It also contains hundreds of examples, 86% of which are new and 94% of which use real data. By analyzing real data, students are able to connect abstract concepts to the world at large. As a result, they gain conceptual understanding and learn to think statistically, using the same methods that professional statisticians employ. Introduction to Statistics; Summarizing and Graphing Data; Statistics for Describing, Exploring, and Comparing Data; Probability; Discrete Probability Distributions; Normal Probability Distributions; Estimates and Sample Sizes; Hypothesis Testing; Inferences from Two Samples; Correlation and Regression; Goodness-of-Fit and Contingency Tables; Analysis of Variance; Nonparametric Statistics; Statistics Process Control; Projects, Procedures, Perspectives For all readers interested in introductory statistics.
