have no better way of estimating m ; but a method of con needed in other cases. Summary. A method is given for dealing with sets of observations, appreciable fractions of which are affected by abnormal errors. The probability of an error is taken to be given jointly by two normal laws, one for the normal and the other for the abnormal errors, and a method of solution for the five unknowns is provided. An approximate solution may also be obtained by a method of weighting, the weight of an
