" The data recorded for each pupil including place of birth, sex, age (in years and months), height and weight. Statistics class decides to collect the weight of year 8 and compare them with the data on the year 7 students. It is agreed the data will be collected one lunch time. Each member of the class will be provided with set of scales and will as many year 8 pupils as possible. At the end of the lunch time they will each report the number of people weighted and the mean of the weight recorded."
In the paragraph above indentify:
-Two qualitative variables
-Two continuous variables
-One discrete quantitative variable
-Secondary data
-Primary data
