Homework Help: 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

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

    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?
