Quantitative Variable

Quantitative Variable

Directions:  Choose a quantitative variable.  Measure it on two different samples of 10, drawn from two different populations.  For example, you might ask the number of cups of coffee consumed daily by 10 men vs 10 women.  Provide a description of the data selected, as well as the two different populations you chose.

Record the data, and for EACH sample, find the sample mean, the sample standard deviation and the five-number summary. Compare your two samples creating boxplots or histograms.

Summarize your results in a paragraph, including a description of how you collected your data and your interpretation of the results.  Does it appear that the two populations are similar, or different? Submit one file and save your document as a pdf file.
