Investigate: Do housewives or working adults have a faster working pulse rate?

I am going to investigate this area of my investigative task topic, because I have always wondered this question, because when ever I want something after I come back from school they are always telling me they are tired so which one of them is more tired my mum the housewife or my father who is the working adult.

However if you look at housewives they don’t take a step out of the house, they are probably doing some cleaning, cooking etc… that’s what they are doing constantly. But working adults are not doing it constantly but faster possibly.

  • You are only doing this job for a limited ...
