Choose any one variable of interest (e.g., cups of coffee) and collect data from two independent samples (e.g., men vs. women, children vs. adults, college students vs. non-college students, etc.) of minimum size n=5 each. Complete the following:
- Indicate whether your variable is continuous or discrete.
- Indicate which scale of measurement your variable is categorized as (nominal, ordinal, interval, or ratio).
- Calculate the mean, median, and mode for each sample.
- Provide a conclusion sentence that describes the difference between these two samples based on the two means (e.g., “the sample of men consume more coffee on average compared to the sample of women”).
Note: Be sure to use the correct notation and formulas for a sample (as opposed to a population)
