  1. Abstract:

The report investigated the weight, height, arm span and shoe size of 20 males and females included their records, discussion whether they are overweight or underweight, and final conclusion about the result. The final result after discussion is gender does have affect on height, weight, arm span and shoe size.

  1. Introduction:

The science report investigate the body mass (height, weight, arm span and shoe size) to understand relationship between weight, height and arm span. Body mass data of 20 people of both genders in the same age range from 19 to 23 will be used in the report. I predict some of the people will be overweight, underweight and balance; arm span will be approximately equal to height and height is relating to weight. My hypothese is gender will have affected on body mass of height, weight, arm span and shoe size.
