    Why not just google :P Inferential statistics "For instance, we use inferential statistics to try to infer from the sample data what the population might think. Or, we use inferential statistics to make judgments of the probability that an observed difference between groups is a dependable one or one that might have happened by chance in this study." Experimental statistics "A coin toss has all the attributes of a statistical experiment. There is more than one possible outcome. We can specify each possible outcome in advance - heads or tails. And there is an element of chance. We cannot know the outcome until we actually flip the coin."

    And if you google descriptive statistics "is the term given to the analysis of data that helps describe, show or summarize data in a meaningful way such that, for example, patterns might emerge from the data."

    I'm not very good at stats, as I've never really taken a course of it, but see if you can simplify the above definitions

    Experimental statistics is like a dice experiment, where there's more than 1 outcome which we know ahead, either 1 of the 6 numbers but we do not know the result until we actually roll it.

    Descriptive statistics the analysis of data in a meaningful way such that they may show a trend.

    Inferential statistics is about inferring the characteristics of the population given a sample data
