Here is a chart to show my results: 3. Do you have a pc in your house? - I chose this question because I wanted to see out of all the people I asked how many of them had a pc in their household. This would help me because if the people answered no to this question I could thank them for their time and go and ask somebody else. It would also help me because it would show me out of the sample how many had a pc and how many didn't so that I could see how many potential customers there would be. My results showed that out of the 30 people I asked 23 of them owned a pc and 7 of them didn't. This showed me that the majority of my sample had a pc in their household. Here is a chart to show my results: 4. Do you buy parts for your pc (e.g. harddrives, cd drives etc.)?- I chose this question because I wanted to see how many people aged 16-19 buy parts for their pc.
