How To: Cut tiles with a standard tile cutter

A standard tile cutter will cut ceramic and porcelain tiles but not natural stone tiles. To use the standard tile cutter adjust and lock the guide. Then, slide your tile into position in the tile cutter. Next, position your cutter on the edge of the tile. Push down on the cutter while sliding the cutter across the tile. When the cutter gets to the end of the tile, press down. The tile should then break into two smooth, clean pieces. Run a tile file over the edge of the tile to reduce the shar...

How To: Calculate variance and standard deviation using Excel

This video shows the method to find the variance and standard deviation using Excel. The variance shows the variability of the data points from the median. We find the difference of the median and the mean. We write the formula using '=' sign. The median and data points are put in it by selecting the appropriate cell. The median is made an absolute constant by pressing the F4 key. This is squared by using '^2'. This is multiplied to the frequency using '*'. The result is found for all the dat...

How To: Build your upper body with standard push-ups

In this tutorial, we learn how to build your upper body with standard push-ups. Start off on the ground with your hands down directly underneath your shoulders and your feet drawn back without the knees bending. Keep this position for several seconds if you are new to working out and then bend down if you feel you can do controlled push ups. Push up and down slowly, because this won't use momentum to lift you back up. Make sure your body doesn't touch the ground, this can hurt your hands if y...

How To: Replace a standard light switch with a dimmer switch

This video is from the Dummies video series. The video will describe the process of replacing a standard light switch with a dimmer switch. First you must pick a dimmer switch that has the capacity to control the light fixture you would like to dim. Add up the wattages of all light bulbs in the fixture and make sure it is less than the rated capacity of your dimmer switch. Next turn off the power to the existing switch from the breaker panel and test with a voltage meter. You will then remove...

How To: Test a vehicle alternator with a standard multimeter

Richpin demonstrates how to test an alternator with a standard multimeter. First make sure that the vehicle's battery is fully charged. Take the negative lead of the multimeter and put it on the negative post of the battery. Place the positive lead of the meter on the positive lead of the battery. Set the meter to DC voltage using the 20 scale and read the display to ensure the battery is fully charged. Next start up the vehicle and see what the alternator is producing. The display should now...

How To: Graph an equation in standard form

This video shows you how to graph an equation in standard form. In easy to understand instructions, you will learn how to find the x and y intercepts in order to put those two points on a graph, creating a line. Finding the intercepts is as easy as plugging in zero and solving for either x or y. This creates an ordered pair, which can then be graphed. The points are plotted easily on a Cartesian plane, which completes the problem.

How To: Understand mean and standard deviation

Keith M. Bower explains the meaning of mean and standard deviation. This educational video gives insight in the basics of statistics. The relations between population mean and sample mean and between population standard deviation and sample standard deviation are explained. The mean gives an idea on the central tendency. Standard deviation gives an idea about how spread out the data are. Keith also explains how these two parameters, the joint sufficient statistics, define a normal distributio...

How To: Interpret a standard deviation

A rough definition of standard deviation is that it is a measure of expressing the observed variations about the average in statistical data i.e. by how much do the observed values vary from the mean. This video continues from the previous solved example and demonstrates the mathematical interpretation of the standard deviation that was calculated. We begin with stating the mean and standard deviation values and then calculating the upper and lower bounds of the data based on the standard dev...
