Baldo: I'm worried about my math class. Baldo: Our math teacher polled the class... Baldo: 40 percent said they were good with numbers... Baldo: And 75 percent said they weren't.
So, what’s the missed 15%, Baldo?
Guess which category the math teacher falls?
I heard the study showed 5/4 ths of all people have trouble with fractions.
New math, anyone?
@TEMPLO S.U.D.You seem to be part of the 75% who have a problem with numbers. 40+75=115. That means the teacher either has 15% more students or a couple of students were polled twice.
Unskew the polls!
@kaecispopIt isn’t the mind of state but a state of mind that matters regardless where they are geographically. Look how bad California is now and claim that it is not a numbers problem.
Nope.This is obviously a statistics class and the margin for error against the total sampling was applied to both results.
There are lies, filthy lies, etc…
kaecispop: Wherever the school, the textbooks were written by Texas fundamentalists.
Maybe there were 7 kids in the class and one was on the fence. Throw in a few rounding errors and your standard deviations are still looking pretty good considering the small sample size..It’s a good lesson for all high school kids to learn that numbers can be made to lie.
