The time plot of the series showed Seasonality but a not obvious trend. The raw data is nonstationary at the level. Time plot of the seasonal differencing of rainfall at lag12 showed a stationary process with seasonality at lag 12 on the PACF and ACF of the series. The periodogram plot reveals that there exist both short and long term cycles within the period. The Fourier series and the seasonal autoregressive moving average models are reduced to 12month of seasonal component.( ) The Akaike Information Criterion (AIC) was used to select better models. The best model is the model that minimises the information criterion. It was observed that SARIMA (1,0,1)(1,1,1)<sub>12</sub> models have a minimum AIC value. Hence, SARIMA model performs better in modelling the rainfall data in Port Harcourt then the Fourier series models.</p> Wiri Leneenadogo Sibeate Pius U ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2021-01-18 2021-01-18 36 46 10.9734/ajpas/2020/v10i330249 On Second Order Slope Rotatable Designs under Intra-class Correlated Structure of Errors Using a Pair of Dissimilar Incomplete Block Designs https://journalajpas.com/index.php/AJPAS/article/view/30246 <p>In this paper, a study of second order slope rotatable designs under intra-class correlation error structure using two suitably chosen dissimilar incomplete block designs like balanced incomplete block designs and symmetrical unequal block arrangements with two unequal block sizes are suggested. Further, we study the variance of the estimated slopes for different values of the intra-class correlation coefficient (ρ) and the distance from the centre (d) for v factors are suggested. Some illustrative examples are also suggested.</p> Sulochana Beeraka Re.

This method is more useful&nbsp;than other methods because it saves time and eorts and doesn't require more calculations, if the&nbsp;edges number is very larg (n). The Wiener index of some standard fuzzy graphs are investigated.&nbsp;At last, we nd the relationship between strong domination number s and the average (G) of&nbsp;a fuzzy graph G was studied with suitable examples.</p> Saqr H.

The proposed distribution is called the Zubair-Dagum distribution. The various mathematical properties of this distribution such as the Quantile function, Moments, Moment generating function, Reliability analysis, Entropy and Order statistics were obtained. The parameter estimates of the proposed distribution were also derived and estimated using the maximum likelihood estimation method. The new distribution is right skewed and has various bathtub and monotonically decreasing shapes. Our numerical illustrations using two real-life datasets substantiate the applicability, flexibility and superiority of the proposed distribution over competing distributions.</p> O. R. Uwaeme N. P.
