I need help with my data handling coursework!
my hypothesis is the value of a second hand car will decrease as it gets older (using saloon cars only). i'm looking at how steeply the price will drop as well.
I've done a cumulative frequency graph, box and whisker diagrams, mean, quartiles, tallys and scattergraphs BUT HOW CAN I INCREASE MY MARK? I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO REPRESENT DATA!!
I don't understand maths even though i'm predicted a B; i am trying to get a B or A on this piece as i did crap on my last one.
whats statistical diversity? would it be a good idea to use A level stuff?
help would be appreciated! thanx!

i think using A level stuff would show that you are good at maths so i'd go with that. i don't know what stuff they use though. maybe an A level maths student could give you some help.
i didnt turn up to a certain subjects lesson because i wasn't good at it; jus coz ur not gud at one subj it don't mean ur not gud at anotha. i'm predicted A in English but a D in science so it just depends on urs strengths and weaknesses! get a tutor if ya don't turn up 2 lessons, i do!

the standard deviation is how much values deviate from the mean, or something to that effect.
