It is also for postgraduate students in the above mentioned areas of study. Practicing managers and professional students can also find this package most exciting and interesting. This book is not out to make mathematicians out of students but to make them become friendly with the basic application of numeracy which is on the increase both in business and learning environment. There is a continual quest for research to help understand and make valuable use of our environment. The application of statistics and quantitative knowledge help arrive at informed decisions which stand the test of time. It is the increasing need for numeracy and the crave to share knowledge beyond the lecture theatre that has motivated the author to put together this textbook in a relatively simple and lucid manner that can clear the student’s phobia about figures.
