The Percentage Decrase in Price of a Car and Its Mileage - The Percentage Decrase in Price of a Car and Its Mileage Aim To find out if the mileage that a car has run is related in any way to the percentage decrease in the price of the car from original price to secondhand price. This would be worthwhile doing as the mileage directly affects the quality of the car and so, affects the price. I will do a pretest (graph of everything) to ensure that the investigation is worth doing, just to see if there is an overall correlation. Method I will pick out the data I need for this project and take samples....   [tags: Papers] 478 words

How Basketball Statistics Affect Winning Percentage for a NCAA Division 1 Team - How Basketball Statistics Affect Winning Percentage for a NCAA Division 1 Team We tried to find out how certain basketball statistics affect winning percentage for a NCAA Division I basketball team. We used the entire NCAA division I 1999-2000 season statistics. We considered the following statistics: Field Goals, Free Throws, Personal Fouls, Turnovers, 3 Pointers, Blocks, & Steals. Our conclusion is that while a rise in each stat had some affect in the rise or fall of winning percentage, we could not determine a single stat that had a direct affect on the dependent variable (Winning Percentage)....   [tags: Papers] 566 words

Outcomes of Affirmative Action - Outcomes of Affirmative Action Affirmative action was started by Lyndon B. Johnson as a way to equalize the employment field to minority job seekers. What started out as an equal opportunity action has become the subject of controversy in many workplaces across the United States.

Amount of Sugar in a Potato - Amount of Sugar in a Potato When you submerge a plant cell in water, water flows through the cell wall and cell surface area into the vacuole from the outside. As a result, the cell swells up, but does not burst. This is because the cell wall stops the cell expanding too much. When this point is reached we say that the cell is fully turgid. This type of diffusion is called osmosis, and takes place through a partially permeable membrane. The water moves from a dilute solution to a concentrated solution....   [tags: Papers] 1150 words
