population
A population is a summation of all the organisms of the same group or species, which live in a particular geographical area, and have the capability of interbreeding

parameter
A parameter , generally, is any characteristic that can help in defining or classifying a particular system

Bar charts
A bar chart or bar graph is a chart that presents grouped data with rectangular bars with lengths proportional to the values that they represent
pie chart
A pie chart is a circular statistical graphic, which is divided into slices to illustrate numerical proportion
table
A table is a collection of related data held in a structured format within a database
Scientific notation
Scientific notation is a way of expressing numbers that are too big or too small to be conveniently written in decimal form
significant figure
The significant figures of a number are digits that carry meaning contributing to its measurement resolution
liter
The litre or liter is an SI accepted metric system unit of volume equal to 1 cubic decimetre , 1,000 cubic centimetres or 1/1,000 cubic metre
deviations
In statistics, the standard deviation is a measure that is used to quantify the amount of variation or dispersion of a set of data values
