Mice Coursework

Introduction

In this coursework I am going to compare two sets of data about the weight of male and female mice. I am then going to make a hypothesis about the weights of these mice and then find out whether or not I am correct.

Hypothesis

My hypothesis is that male mice will be heavier than the female mice. I think this because usually males need to eat more and tend to be bigger.

Grouping the Mice.

In this coursework I will also have quite a few graphs.

So the mean average of male mice is 1710÷94= 18.20 (2 d.p. places)

From this we can already see that on average male mice are bigger in weight.

The next step that I will take is to draw the cumulative frequency graphs. I am drawing the cumulative frequency graph so that I can calculate the median value. The reason for this is because it
