This set of terms will be an arithmetic sequence.
We know the first term, a1, the last term, an, but not the common difference, d. This question makes NO mention of "sum", so avoid that formula.

* The focus of this section is the characteristics of center of a data set. In particular, we present measures of center, including mean and median, as tools for analyzing data.
Part 1: Basic Concepts of Measures of Center
* Measure of Center – is a value at the center or middle of a data set.
* There are several different ways to determine the center, so we have different definitions of measures of center, including mean, median, mode, and midrange. We begin with the mean.

A major milestone in making the connection between measuring as a human activity and performancewas in 1494, when Luca Pacioli published in Venice ‘Summa de arithmetica, geometrica, proportioni et proportionalita’ (‘Everything on arithmetic, geometry, proportions and proportionality’). It detailed a practice the Venetian sailors had in place to evaluate the performance of their sailing expeditions, which became the basis of the double-entry accounting system.
The subjective nature of individual performance evaluations and the dominance of financial indicators for evaluating enterprise performance became stepstones for performance management in human activities.

weighted mean is the same as the arithmetic mean. Whereas weighted means generally behave in a similar approach to arithmetic means, they do have a few counter instinctive properties. Data elements with a high weight contribute more to the weighted mean than do elements with a low weight. The weights cannot be negative.
Weighted Mean Formula
The Weighted mean for given set of non-negative data with non-negative weights can be derived from the formula:

Discussion Points: Dumping is defined as selling goods in a foreign market below the cost of production, or below fair market value.

While the ITC ruled in favor of the American company, some students might question whether the fact that the Chinese could sell their product at low prices might simply reflect the country’s significantly lower wage rates.

Evangelism in the early church was based of off Jesus Christ’s example. Now Jesus evangelized differently, many people, including his disciples were confused at they way he did things. The disciples did not prioritize the spiritual needs of others like Jesus did. In the case of the Samaritan women, Jesus stepped out of His comfort zone and took the initiative to start the conversation with her. He also broke barriers and turned the conversation to spiritual matters. In this example, Jesus moved from the physical water to her need for the living water. He would boldly and wisely address the issue of sin and refused to be sidetracked. Comparing with Jesus, the disciples struggled with

The development and future strategy of Ryanair
Ryanair became in 2009 the airline company which carry the most passengers in Europe. That is the result of its strategy which is based on a ‘no frills’ service in order to offer the lower prices. The business model of Ryanair is different from the classic carriers’ in the way that 20% of its revenue is generated from ancillary revenue, such as its “buy on board” program or extra fees for luggage. As we have seen above, the airline industry is very dynamic, and the apparition of alliances within the market forces Ryanair to stay competitive in its environment. Until now, the company did it very well by being emergent, its flexible structure

Role of the Mentor
In line with the preparation of mentors, this assignment will aim to look at mentorship in depth. A variety of aspects around mentorship will be discussed, the first being the emergence of mentorship. This will explore what emphasis was placed on learning prior to Project 2000, and then moving to present day and the different documents that were implemented and the benefit these had on the mentoring process. Several definitions of mentorship will be addressed due to the lack of consensus regarding this. As a result, a clear distinction will be made between the differences of clinical supervision, perceptorship and the mentoring process.
