This graph show the year 10s height (X axes) plotted against the weight (Y axes). From this graph you can see it has a positive correlation and most of the results are close to the line of best fit. However you can see one result is a lot heavier that what the line of best fit says. For the person of 1.54 metres in height, the person should weight 50 kilograms when in fact he weights 66 kilograms.

    This would have made the investigation a great deal more reliable and accurate to prove or disprove my hypotheses. With the 50 samples out of the 1183 students, I think that this did not fairly reflect the population proving that the hypotheses were correct.

  1. Conduct an investigation comparing height and weight from pupils in Mayfield School.

    So I can estimate that 18 out of 25 or 72% of boys will be between 140 - 160cm tall. So if I were to select a boy at random from the school, my data suggests that the probability of him having a height between 140 - 160cm is 0.72.

    I can also see that the lower 50% of the data is closer together, and the higher 50% of the data is more spread out. 7. Standard Deviation Standard Deviation = 9.52 The Standard Deviation measures how the data are dispersed from the mean.

    Mean, mode, median and range I will now use estimate mean, mode, median and range to give me a more information and more clear evidence about weight and height. Firstly I will consider weight. Mean weight I will use my frequency tables to find out the mean of the weight for boys and girls.
