Notes from Professor:

Dear class,

The first topic we want to see how we use conversion in the real world. Assume you would like to know what is the best local food in a country so you send out a team to interview local people in that country. You only have a certain budget to stay several weeks. you would like to know how many people your team should interview per day in order to get the best survey result. Moreover, you would like to know how many people your team should interview per hour and per second so you can control the length of interview. <<<—- This is my make up story for this assignment. Otherwise it is a strange assignment, isn’t it? wink
