RE: Week five discussion question Scott Moehlmann 1/9/2012 7:19:30 PM
To take this discussion post further I can calculate the mean, median, mode by gender.
I had 18 people in my survey, nine women and nine men.
The mean for the ages of the women can be calculated by adding the nine ages and then dividing by nine:
25+25+26+28+28+29+35+35+40=271. 271/9=30.1. This equates to the mean or average age of the females surveyed was 30.1 years old.
To find the median I will do a data array process:
25 25 26 28 28 29 35 35 40. In this equation I can see that the median age of the females is 28 which is actually two years less than the mean or average age.
Next I will find the mode of the ages for the females:
25 25 26 28 28 29*…show more content…*

The mean for the ages of the men can be calculated by adding the nine ages and then dividing by nine: 19+21+22+26+26+28+29+34+41=246. 246/9=27.33. This equates to the mean or average age of the males being 27.33 years old. The data array process for the men is: 19 21 22 26 26 28 29 34 41. This shows me that the median age of the male is 26 which is 1.33 years less than the average male age and 4.1 years younger than the average female. Now I will look at the mode for the ages of the men: 19 21 22 26 26 28 29 34 41. In this situation there is only mode in the men’s ages which is 26 because this is the only age of the males that appears more than one time. The median age and mode age is the same for the males for this survey which is actually 1.33 years less than the average male. The measure of central tendency that best described my data for the age in my sampling was the mean because the results showed that the average female at 30.1 years old. The median results were close to this showing that the age would be 28. The measure of central tendency that best described my data for the age in my sampling was the mean because the results showed that the average male to be 26 years old. The median results were the same showing that the age of the male to be

## Extending School Days

903 Words | 4 PagesThe same concept applies towards the student who scores a 32 on the ACT compared with a student who scored a 22. It's no wonder why American students tend to have lower scores compared to other countries, such as Japan. Currently, the United States has the shortest school year with an average of 180 days while Japan, who is also in the lead has a whopping average of 243 per year. Now, some people may say that the 63 day difference is not much, but lets assume that both Japan and the United States have a regular seven hour school day, that's 441 more hours of education that Japan students receive than the students from the states. Or lets put it this way, there are 365 days in a year-considering it a regular year- that's 260 weekdays, give or take minus the 243 days of school that Japan students attend, that's only 17 days of break that they receive; compared to the US that has 80 non school days.
