French to English translations [Non-PRO] Tech/Engineering - Mathematics & Statistics
French term or phrase:joueur de golf
The document is actually about signal to noise ratio's for ceramics manufacturing, but I get the feeling this example is Mathematics related. There is no mention elsewhere in the document about a golf player; is it a Mathematical metaphor, or is it just a simple case of the example being given in another document? The paragraph before this one also talks about the écart type (standard deviation). Thanks in advance!!
La valeur d’un écart type ne signifie rien par elle-même. Elle doit toujours être relativisée par rapport à la moyenne des valeurs mesurées (cf. l’exemple du joueur de golf).
