Does/should one say "the degrees of freedom is defined to be" or "the
degrees of freedom are defined to be"?
Although value of "degrees of freedom" is a single number, the first
formulation sounds very odd to my ear.
I would like to call upon the collective wisdom of the R community to
help me decide.
Thanks, and my apologies for the off-topic post.
