Statistics has two main functions: Description and Inference. What does it mean when we say "Description to Inference: A Transition?"

And, what statistical areas must inference use?

You have knowledge of particular variables, which is description. From this knowledge, you can make predictions, which is inference. Various tests of probability would be used.

I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
