# Belle Vorada SOCATIYANURAK 8C Y8 Statistics Assessment

## In Year 8, which gender is faster in answering multiplication questions?

1|Page

These are two sets of frequency data, the girls and the boys results, that I use to organise the data that I had collected. This is to calculate the mean, median, mode and range.

## Girls Frequency Distribution Table

Girls time in minutes 1 g 3 3<g 5 5<g 7 7<g 9 Frequency (f) 12 3 1 1 Midpoint (m) 2 4 6 8 Frequency x Midpoint 24 12 6 8

= 17

=50

Mean =

=2.94

Median = to find the median I must divide the f with two, for instance I divide 17 by 2. This equals 8.5. So we round it up so that it is the ninth person. The 9th persons time is in between 1 to 3 minutes, so the midpoint is 2. Mode = the most frequent time is around 1 to 3 minutes.

## Boys Frequency Distribution Table

Boys time in minutes 1 g 3 3<g 5 5<g 7 7<g 9 9 < g 11 11 < g 13 Frequency (f) 9 9 0 1 0 1 =20 Midpoint (m) 2 4 6 8 10 12 Frequency x Midpoint 18 36 0 8 0 12 m=74

Mean =

= 3.7

Median= the frequency sum is even so it means that there must be 2 middle numbers. It is the 10th and the 11th number. When I plus the frequency of the 1 g 3 minutes and the 3 < g 5minutes, I get 18. So it means that the median time is 3-5 minutes. The midpoint is 4. Mode = the mode is between the 1 to 5 minutes.

Here is the summarised data. Mean 2.94 minutes 3.7 minutes Median 1-3 minutes 3-5 minutes Mode 1-3 minutes 1-5 minutes

Girls Boys

This shows that girls are faster because the girls mean and median are faster than the boys. The boys mode isnt clear or relevant because it is a wide range, so we cannot say who is faster in the mode. However, over all the girls are faster. Because the range is in groups, it is not possible to figure out. This is a graph to compare both of the genders time.
