These steps of observation, asking a question, forming a hypothesis, experimentation and interpretation of results have provided the groundwork of past discovery and will be the guiding force for future discovery.

## What are the factors affecting the experimental plan?

Most experiments are designed to study the fixed effects. Random effects factors are variables which can not be controlled by the investigator. They include inter-individual differences, litter effects, time effects and environmental effects like barometric pressure and batch differences in diet and bedding.

## What are constant factors called?

The factors that can change value during an experiment or between experiments, such as water temperature, are called variables, while those that stay the same, such as acceleration due to gravity at a certain location, are called constants.

## What is interest example?

Interest is defined as the amount of money paid for the use of someone else’s money. An example of interest is the \$20 that was earned this year on your savings account. An example of interest is the \$2000 you paid in interest this year on your home loan.
