Compare and contrast data

  1. Apr 15, 2017 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Compare and contrast the given data

    2. Relevant equations

    None needed for this

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I'm never too sure what kind of thing I'd be expected to do for something like
    this.

    Here's how I would go about it, but would appreciate any pointers / things to
    consider:


    Representing mock with A, real with B

    Mean : A < B implies that the average mark was higher on B

    St. Dev : A > B implies that there was a greater spread of marks in A than B

    Min, Max : the Min(A) < Min(B) and Max(A) < Max(B), also [Max(A) - Min(A) ]<
    [Max(B) - Min(B)] , which implies that the marks were spread out more in A than
    B, and supports what was considered from the standard deviation.

    IQR: We can find the IQR from the difference between the provided quartiles, so
    for A we have ~12 and for B we have ~5.

    I'm not too sure what else I would really say about this though?

    Thanks

    Thanks for the thread! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post? The more details the better.
