1. On page 115, Analysis of Reswults - Numerical, it says that K1, is 1/d2, whereby d2 is dependent on the number of trials (m) and number of parts X number of appraisers (g). But for K2, it is dependent on number of appraisers (m) and g=1 (range)...and as for K3, it isdependent on number of parts (m) and g=1 (range)

Now, I'm a bit confused on the usage of m and g here. How do we get the 'range' (g) = 1 for the cases of K2 and K3 ?

Maybe someone can enlighten me of how to use the m and g more efficiently ?

2. In the Appendix C, page 195, Table d2, if the g > 20, it is true that we will use the d2 infinity value, which is right at the bottom of the table ? (second last row) ?

What is the 'cd' value for ?

3. Can anyone help me on the definition of 'degree of freedom' ? Been to some of the website, and still could not grasp the idea. Anyone care to explain it in layman term ?

Thanks a lot !!!!
