A batch is a set of numbers that are related to each other because they are different instances of the same thing. The simplest example of a batch of numbers is a set of measurements of different examples of the same kind of thing. For example, the lengths of a group of scrapers, the diameters of a group of post holes, and the areas of a group of sites are three batches of numbers. In these instances, length, diameter, and area are variables and each scraper, post hole, and site is a case.
