POWER

1. the ability to impact or persuade other people, even whenever they try to resist this such. The cultural type stems from many sources: management over punishments and rewards- a right to necessitate and demand obedience- other peoples' identification with, draw to, or allegiance for the power holder- other peoples' belief that the power holder has dominant skills and capacities- and the power holder's access to and utilization of data sources. 2. with regard to hypothesis testing, the likelihood that the null hypothesis will be refuted whenever the optional hypothesis is found to be truthful. 3. with regard to mathematics, a notation which dictates the amount of times a quantity is multiplied by itself.

POWER: "The next step is to raise the quantity to the tenth power."
