2011 Hatchlings By the Number

Turtle 232

Now that we have our two new Blanding’s turtle hatchlings, it’s time to reacquaint ourselves with data analysis.  Take a look at the following three tables and answer the questions about each.  Remember to answer your questions in full sentences.   You can click on the tables to make them easier to read.  A reminder of data analysis terms:

1.  Range:  list the data from the lowest number to the highest number.

2.  Median:  the middle number in a set of data.  If it is an odd number of data, it is the middle number.  If it is an even number, you add the middle two numbers and divide it by two.

 

Data from Turtle 3300

1.  What is the range of lengths for the hatchlings of Turtle 3300?  What is the difference between the lowest and highest length?  What is the median length?

2.  What is the range of weights for the hatchlings of Turtle 3300?  What is the difference between the lowest and heaviest weight?  What is the median weight?

3.  Where does our turtle 224 fall within this data?

Data for Hatchlings of Turtle 334

1.  What is the range of lengths for the hatchlings of Turtle 334?  What is the difference between the lowest and highest length?  What is the median length?

2.  What is the range of weights for the hatchlings of Turtle 334?  What is the difference between the lowest and heaviest weight?  What is the median weight?

3.  Where does our turtle 232 fall within this data?

Take a look at the number of hatchlings for both these turtle mothers.  How would you describe the number of live births that each turtle mother had in 2011?  What would you attribute this difference to?

  1. Ec10 (formerly EC4)

    1. The range of lengths for the hatchlings of Turtle 3300 is from 31.8mm to 34.8mm. The difference between the lowest and highest lengths is 3mm. The median length is 33.7mm.
    2. The range of weights for the hatchlings of Turtle 3300 is from 7.1 g to 9.4 g. The difference between the lowest and heaviest weight is 2.3g. The median weight is 8.5g.
    3. Our turtle 224 is heavier than 6 of the 8 other turtles within this data set. It is longer than 4 of the 8 other turtles.

    1. The range of lengths for the hatchlings of Turtle 334 is from 32.3mm to 35.1 mm. The difference between the lowest and highest length is 2.8mm. The median length is 33.1mm.
    2. The range of weights for the hatchlings of Turtle 334 is from 8.5g to 9.3g. The difference between the lowest and heaviest weight is 0.8g. The median weight is 9g.
    3. Our turtle 232 is the median for length and just above the median for weight within this data.

    The number of live births for turtle 334 in 2011 is four lower than in the past three years. For turtle 3300, the number of live births in 2011 is higher than 2010 by one birth and lower than 2009 by five turtle births. I think that turtle 3300 is having about an average number of births for her, but that turtle 334 is having a lower number of births than usual. I wonder what is happening in the nest for turtle 334, because she probably laid the same number of eggs, but fewer survived.

    g=grams
    mm=milimeters

  2. 1. The range for the hatchlings of 3300 is 31.8 – 34.8 in millimeters. The difference between the lowest and the highest lengths is exactly 3 millimeters. The median of the lengths is 33.65 millimeters.

    2. The range of the weights for mother 3300 is 7.1 – 9.4 grams The difference between the the lowest and the hight weights is 2.3 grams. The median weight is 8.7 grams.

    3. Our turtle falls in on each measurement just around the median, sonnet in a bad way, but he is and average turtle.

    1. The range for the hatchlings of 334 is 32.3 – 35.1 in millimeters. The difference between the lowest and the highest lengths is also 3 millimeters. The median length for mother 334’s hatchlings is 33.7 millimeters.

    2. The range of the weights for mother 344 is 8.5 – 9.3 grams. The difference between the the lowest and the hight weights is .8 grams. The median weight is 9 grams for mother 344.

    3. In the data our turtle 232 is like our other turtle. He/She is a great weight and length. The turtle is not overweight or underweight.

    4. Both of the mothers were lucky to even have hatchlings. In 2011 the 2 turtles laid 13 eggs together. Now this year mother 3300 had the same amount of babies as last time. 8 hatchlings. And mother 344 laid 5 eggs as well. The 2 turtles didn’t do as I expected for them to do this year.

  3. 1. The range of these numbers is 31.8-34.8 (mm).
    The difference is 3 (mm).
    The median is 33 (mm).

    2. The range of these numbers is 7.1-9.4 (g)

    The difference is 1.2 (g)
    The median is 9 (g).

    3. He/she is also in about the middle of the data.
    Data?
    Turtle 3300 had her second least number of live births since 2008.
    Turtle 334 has had 9 live births every year since 2008 but this year she only had 5.

  4. 1. Hatchlings from turtle 3300 length and weight chart.

    1) The range of the lengths for the hatchlings of the turtle 3300 is 31.8-34.8mm. The difference between the lowest and the highest lenght is 3.0mm. The median length is 33.65mm.

    2) The range of the weights for the hatchlings of the turtle 3300 is 7.1-9.4grams. The difference between the lowest and the highest weight is 2.3grams. The median weight is 8.6grams.

    3) The turtle 224 falls in the larger and heavier side of the group.

    2. Hatchlings from turtle 334 length and weight chart.

    1) The range of the lenghts for the hatchlings of the turtle 334 is 32.3-35.1mm. The difference between the lowest and highest length is 2.8mm. The median length is 33.1mm.

    2) The range of the weights for the hatchlings of the turtle 334 is 8.5-9.3grams. The difference between the lowest and hightest weight is 0.8grams. The median weight is 9 grams.

    3) The turtle 232 falss in the smaller but heavier side of the group.

    3. Number of live births for turtles 3300 and 334 chart

    I would describe the number of live births of turtle mothers in 2011 as the least live births. I think it is becuase of the temperature, humidity and the stormy weather.

  5. ec 15 (formally ec16)

    Part I

    1. What is the range of lengths for the hatchlings of Turtle 3300? What is the difference between the lowest and highest length? What is the median length?

    The range of lengths for the hatchlings of Turtle 3300 is from 31.8mm-34.8mm. The difference between the highest and lowest length is 3 mm.The median length is 33.65 mm.

    2. What is the range of weights for the hatchlings of Turtle 3300? What is the difference between the lowest and heaviest weight? What is the median weight?

    The range of the weights is from 7.1-9.4 grams. The differnce between the highest and lowest weight is 2.3 grams. The median is 8.6 grams.

    3. Where does our turtle 224 fall within this data?

    Our turtle which is turtle 224 falls towards the middle of the data. So I think he/she is doing fine because he/she is an average turtle.

    Part II
    1. What is the range of lengths for the hatchlings of

    Turtle 334? What is the difference between the lowest and highest length? What is the median length?

    The range of lengths for the hatchlings of Turtle 334 is from 32.3-35.1mm. The difference between the highest and lowest length is 2.8mm.The median length is 33.1 mm.

    2. What is the range of weights for the hatchlings of Turtle 334? What is the difference between the lowest and heaviest weight? What is the median weight?

    The range of weights for the hatchlings of Turtle 334 is from 8.5-9.3 grams.The difference between the highest and lowest length is .8 grams.The median length is 9 grams.

    3. Where does our turtle 232 fall within this data?

    Our turtle,232 in length is an average. In weight he/she is just above the average.

    Take a look at the number of hatchlings for both these turtle mothers. How would you describe the number of live births that each turtle mother had in 2011? What would you attribute this difference to?

    Turtle 3300 has gone 5 turtle hatchling’s down since 2009 but she has gone one turtle up since 2010. Whereas Turtle 334 had the same amount of turtles for 3 years and then she suddenly went down 4 turtles. I think this was caused by the sudden changing of weather and Hurricane Irene. Hurricane Irene may have destroyed a lot of nests.

  6.  2.What is the range of lengths for the hatchlings of Turtle 3300?  What is the difference between the lowest and highest length?  What is the median length?
    1a. The range of the lengths is from 32-35 mm. The difference is 3 millimeters. The median is 34 millimeters.

     What is the range of weights for the hatchlings of Turtle 334?  What is the difference between the lowest and heaviest weight?  What is the median weight?
    2b. The range is from 9-9 grams. The difference between them is 0. The median is 9 grams.
     Where does our turtle 232 fall within this data?
    3b. Our turtle falls in with all of the other turtles.
    Part 3
    1. How would you describe the number of live births that each turtle mother had in 2011?  What would you attribute this difference to?
    1c. I would describe it as not many because in previous year there has been more live births. May be it is because of the hot weather and the location of the nests.

  7. 1) 31.8, 33.1, 33.5, 33.6, 33.7, 33.7, 34.3, 34.8. The difference between the lowest to highest is 3. The median is 33 ½. 7.1, 7.9, 8.1, 8.5, 8.7, 9, 9.3, 9.4. The difference between the lowest and the heaviest is 2. The median weight is 8.5. Our turtle falls in with length at 33.7 and for weight our turtle weighs in at 9.

    2) 33, 33.1, 32.3, 34.6, 35.1. The difference for the lowest and the highest is 2. The median is 32.3. 8.5, 8.8, 9, 9.1, 9.3. The difference between the lowest and the heaviest is 1. The median is 9. Our turtle falls in with length at 33.1 and for weight is weighs in at 9.1.

    3) In 2011 the 2 turtles laid 13 eggs together. Now this year mother 3300 had the same amount of babies as last time. 8 hatchlings. And mother 344 laid 5 eggs as well. The 2 turtles didn’t do as I expected for them to do this year.

  8. 1.) The range for the length of hatchling turtle 3,300 is 3 (mm). 34.8-31.8=3 mm. The median length for hatchling 3,300 is 33.7 (mm).
    2.) The range for weight for hatchling 3,300 is 2.3 grams. The median weight for hatchling 3,300 is 8.1 grams.
    3.) 224 falls in with this data by being in the middle of the length, and pretty high on the weight.

    1. The range for the lengths for the hatchlings of Turtle 334 is 0.28 mm. 35.1-32.3=0.28 The median length for the hatchlings Turtle 334 is 33.1 mm.
    2.) The range of the weights for the hatchlings of Turtle 334 is 0.3 grams. 9.3-8.5=0.3 grams. The median weight for the hatchlings of Turtle 334 is 9.0 grams.
    3.) Turtle 232 falls in within this data by being in the middle of the length and the weight.

    I would describe the number of live births that each turtle mother had in 2011 by looking at the chart, going to the 2011 column, and add up both of the amount of eggs that each turtle mother gave birth to that year. Turtle 3,300 laid 8 eggs. Turtle 334 laid 5 eggs. That adds up to 13 eggs laid all together. I thought that the two turtles would lay more eggs than they did all the years before.

  9. EC20 (formerly EC12)

    1. The range of lengths for the hatchlings of Turtle 3300 is from 31.8 millimeters (the lowest) to 34.8 millimeters (the highest). The difference between the lowest and highest length is 3.0 millimeters. The median length is 33.65.

    2. The range of weights for the hatchlings of Turtle 3300 is from 7.1 grams to 9.4 grams. The difference between the lowest and heaviest weight is 2.3 grams. The median weight is 8.6 grams.

    3. Our turtle 224 is shorter than three turtles but longer than four, and he/she is lighter than four turtles but heavier than five turtles, so turtle 224 is doing pretty well on the weight and length scale.

    ******************************************************************************************
    1.The range of lengths for the hatchlings of Turtle 334 is from 32.3 millimeters to 35.1 millimeters. The difference between the lowest and highest length is 2.8 millimeters. The median length is 33.1 millimeters.

    2. The range of weights for the hatchlings of Turtle 334 is from 8.5 grams to 9.3 grams. The difference between the lowest and heaviest weight is 0.8 grams. The median weight is 9.0 grams.

    3. Our turtle 232 is longer than two turtles and also shorter than two turtles, plus he/she is heavier than three turtles and only lighter than one, so turtle 232 is also doing awesome on the weight and length scale.

    ******************************************************************************************
    1. I would describe the number of live births for the turtles 3300 and 334 as steady yet uneven. Turtle 334 has 9 live hatchlings three years in a row, and then drops down to only 5 hatchlings, while Turtle 3300 has 13 one year and then drops down to 7 and 8 live hatchlings. I say that they were lucky to have turtle babies at all.

  10. The range of lengths for the hatchlings of 3300 are 31.8 to 34.8 the difference is 3.0. The median length is 33.1.

    The range of weights for the hatchlings of 3300 are 7.1 to 9.4 the difference is 2.3. The median weight is 8.6.

    Turtle 224 falls in the median of the data.

    The range of lengths for hatchlings of 334 are 32.3 to 35.1 the difference is 2.8. The median length is 33.1.

    The range of weights for hatchlings 334 are 8.5 to 9.3 the difference is .8. The median weight is 9.

    Turtle 232 fall in the median of the data.

    Turtle 3300 had 28 live births, Turtle 334 had 32 live births. Turtle 3300 median births are 10. Turtle 334 median births are 9. The difference comes from the missing data.

  11. Mother 3300

    1. The rang from lengths of hatchling’s from mother 3300 is from 31.8(mm)to 34.8(mm). The difference between the lowest and the highest is 3(mm). The median is 33.6 and a half.

    2. The rang from weights of hatchling’s from mother 3300 is from 7.1 grams to 9.4 grams. The difference between the lowest and highest weights is 2.3 grams. The median of the weights is 8.6 grams.

    3. Turtle 224 is in a good spot based on the weights. It is over the median which is pretty good. He is on the shorter side for lengths but I think it’s fine.

    Mother 334

    1. The rang from lengths of hatchling’s from mother 334 is from 32.3(mm) to 35.2(mm). The difference between the lowest and highest is 2.8 (mm). The median is 33.1(mm).

    2. The rang from weights of hatchling’s from mother 334 is from 8.5 grams to 9.3 grams. The difference between the lowest and highest weights is .8 grams. The median is 9 grams.

    3. Turtle 232 is about the median for each length and weight so he/she is about okay.

    I think Mother 3300 had a pretty normal year because 2009 could have just been a good year. I think if she had the same amount every year it would be fine. Mother 334 had an under average year. Every other year she had 9 hatchling’s, this year she only had 5.

  12. 1A) The range of weights for the hatchlings of Turtle 3300 is from 31.8mm to 34.8mm.
    The difference between the lowest and highest lengths is 3mm.
    The median length is 33.65mm.

    1B) The range of weights for the hatchlings of Turtle 3300 is from 7.1g-9.4g.
    The difference between the lowest and highest weights is 2.3g.
    The median weight is 8.6g.

    1C) Turtle 224 is about the average size between his siblings. He is around the average size for both categories, both size and weight.

    2A) The range of lengths for the hatchlings of Turtle 334 is from 32.3mm-35.1mm.
    The difference between the lowest and highest lengths is 3.2mm.
    The median length is 33.1mm.

    2B) The range of weights for the hatchlings of Turtle 334 is from 8.5g-9.3g.
    The difference between the lowest and heaviest weight is 0.8g.
    The median weight is 9g.

    2C) Turtle 232 is pretty much like turtle 224 in the sense of size and weight. So, like I said before, (Exactly using these words) he is around the average size for both categories, both size and weight.
    Turtle 334 kept up a steady pace in the amount of eggs she laid over the years. This year though,She laid 4 less eggs than she normally does every year. I think turtle 334’s eggs got eaten or lost or some thing like that or maybe the eggs just died before birth. Turtle 3300 has laid a highish amount of eggs every year (possibly other than the unknown one) but since 2009 she has laid more eggs than turtle 334.

  13. The range of lengths from the hatchlings of turtle #3300 is 31.8mm – 34.8mm. The difference between the longest hatchling’s length and the shortest hatchling’s weight is 3mm. The median of that range of hatchling lengths is 33.65mm.
    2. The range of weights from the hatchlings of turtle #3300 is 7.1g – 9.4g. The difference between the heaviest hatchling’s and the lightest hatchling’s weight is 2.3g. The median of that range of hatchling weights is 8.6g.
    3. Our turtle #224 is the third heaviest hatchling out of eight hatchlings born from turtle #3300 and tied for the third longest hatchling out of eight born from turtle #3300.

    1. The range of lengths from turtle #334’s hatchlings was 32.3mm – 35.1mm. The difference between the longest hatchling’s length and the shortest hatchling’s weight is 2.8mm. The median of that range of hatchling lengths is 33.1mm.
    2. The range of weights from turtle #334’s hatchlings was 8.5g – 9.3g. The difference between the heaviest turtle’s weight and the lightest turtle’s weight was 0.8g.The median of that range of hatchling weights is 9.0g.
    3. Within this data of five hatchlings, our turtle #232 is in the middle/the median of the length range. He/she is also the2nd largest out of 5 hatchlings.

    Even though this wasn’t a very good year, turtle #3300 gave birth to more live turtles than last year. But compared to 2009 this wasn’t a very good year at all for turtle #3300 who gave birth to eight successful hatchlings this year. The other mother turtle, #334 dropped down a lot this year in terms of producing live hatchlings. For three years straight, she had given birth to nine live turtles but this year she went down more than 33% and only gave birth to five. Overall, this was a terrible year for turtle# 334. But turtle #3300 didn’t do too badly because if I were to find the median of the past 3 years that have been analyzed, this year would be the median.

  14. 1. The range of lengths for turtle 3300’s hatchlings is from 31.8mm – 34.8mm. The median length is 33.65.

    2. The range of the hatchlings for turtle 3300 is from 7.1 grams to 9.4 grams. The difference between the lightest and the heaviest turtle is 2.3 grams. The median weight is 8.6 grams.

    3. Turtle 224 is shorter than 3 turtles but longer than 4, and he is lighter than 4 turtles but heavier than 5 turtles.

    1. The range of mm for the hatchlings of turtle 334 is from 32.3 mm – 35.1 mm. The difference from the lowest length and the highest length is 2.8mm. The median length is 33.1 mm.

    2. The range of weights for the hatchlings of turtle 334 is from 32.3grams – 35.1 grams. The difference between the lowest and highest length is 2.8 grams. The median weight is 9 grams.

    3. Our turtle 232 is longer than 2 turtles but shorter than 2 turtles. Also he is heavier than 3 turtles but lighter than 1 turtle.

    Turtle 3300 had three more births than turtle 334 in 2011. What I find interesting is that for three years in a row turtle 334 had nine births and for 2011 the number went down dramatically. I think that’s because maybe she laid her eggs in a bad spot this time.

  15. 1. The range for turtle 3300’s hatchlings length is 31.8mm-34.8mm. The difference from 34.8mm and 31.8 is 3.0mm. The median is 33.65.
    2. The range for turtle 3300’s hatchlings weight is 9.4g-7.1g. The difference from 9.4g and 7.1g is 2.3g. The median is 8.6g.
    3. Turtle 224 is near the middle for the length and on the high side for the weigh,

    4. The range for turtle 334’s hatchlings length is 32.3mm-35.1mm. The difference from 35.1mm and 32.3mm is 2.8mm. The median is 33.05mm.
    5. The range for turtle 334’s hatchlings weight is 9.3-8.5. The difference from 9.3and 8.5 is 0.5. The median is 9.
    6. Turtle 232 is in the middle in length and on the high side for weight.

    7. Turtle 3300 is going all over the place for laying eggs and turtle 334 is nice and steady.

  16. Data from Turtle 3300
    1. What is the range of lengths for the hatchlings of Turtle 3300? What is the difference between the lowest and highest length? What is the median length?

    The range of height is 31.8mm through 34.8mm. The difference between the two is 3mm.
    The median is 33.65mm

    2. What is the range of weights for the hatchlings of Turtle 3300? What is the difference between the lowest and heaviest weight? What is the median weight?
    The weight range for turtle 3300s hatchlings is 7.1 grams to 9.4 grams.
    The difference between difference between the largest turtle and the smallest turtle is 2.3 grams .
    The median weight is 8.6mm.

    3. Where does our turtle 224 fall within this data?
    It looks like turtle 224 is at the higher weight in the data. He is 9 grams and median for weight was 8.6 grams, so he is doing well on weight.
    Data for Hatchlings of Turtle 334
    1. What is the range of lengths for the hatchlings of Turtle 334? What is the difference between the lowest and highest length? What is the median length?
    The range is 32.3 grams through 35.1grams. The difference between the two lengths is 2.9 grams. The median length is 33.1 grams is the median weight.

    3. Where does our turtle 232 fall within this data?
    Turtle 232’s nest’s median is 9 grams, and he is around average at 9.1 grams.
    Take a look at the number of hatchlings for both these turtle mothers. How would you describe the number of live births that each turtle mother had in 2011? What would you attribute this difference to?
    Obbiously both turtles were not having a very good year and I think the major contributing factor is that we had a indian summer.

  17. 1. The range of the length for hatchlings from turtle 3300 is 31.8mm-34.8mm. The difference between the lowest and highest length is 3mm. The median of turtle hatchlings from turtle 3300 is 33.

  18. 1. The range of lengths for the hatchlings of 3300 is 31.8 – 34.8mm. The difference between the lowest and highest lengths is 3mm. The median of the lengths is 33.65.
    2. The range of weights for the hatchlings of 3300 are 7.1 grams – 9.4 grams. the difference between the lowest and highest weights is 2.3 grams. The median of the weights is 8.6 grams.
    3. Hatchling 224 is pretty much in the middle for length and for weight he/she is sort of on the heavier side.

    1. The range of lengths for the hatchlings of 334 is 32.3mm – 35.1mm. The difference between the two numbers is 2.8mm. The median for this data is 33.1mm.
    2. The range of weights for the hatchlings of 334 is 8.5 – 9.3 grams. The difference between those two numbers is 0.8 grams. The median for this data is 9.0 grams.
    3. Hatchling 232 is smack in the middle for length and for weight she/he is sort of on the heavier side but is also sort of in the middle.

    I think that turtle 3300 had a pretty normal year even though in 2009 she had a lucky number of eggs hatch and so I don’t think it is very lucky but it’s not bad. On the other hand, turtle 334 had a bad year because she usually has 9 live births but this year she only had 5.

  19. 1. The range of lengths is 31.8-34.8 millimeters. The difference between the lowest and highest length is 3 millimeters. The median length is 33.65 millimeters.
    2. The range of weights for the hatchlings of turtle 3300 is 7.1-9.4 grams. The difference between the lightest an heaviest is 2.3 grams. The median weight is 8.6 grams.
    3. Our turtle #224 falls right around the median so he is an average turtle.

    1. The range of lengths for the hatchlings of turtle 334 is 32.3-35.1. The difference between the lowest and highest length is 2.8 millimeters. The median length is 33.1 millimeters.
    2. The range of weights is 8.5-9.3 grams. The difference between the lightest and heaviest is 0.8 grams. The median weight is 9 grams.
    3. Our turtle 232 falls somewhere a bit above the median height and length.

    The reason that the hatchlings aren’t doing so well is because the summer was very cold at some parts and maybe turtlea334 didn’t choose the best nesting spot.

  20. 1a. The range of the lengths for turtle 3300’s hatchlings is 31.8mm-34.8mm. The difference between the biggest and smallest length is 3mm. The median length is 0.3mm.

    2a. The range of the weights of 3300’s hatchlings is 7.1grams-9.4grams. The difference between the lightest and heaviest weights is 2.3grams. The median of the weights is 8.6grams.

    3a. Our turtle 224 falls as one of the bigger hatchlings with being in the biggest three for length and weight. Since 224 has more brothers and sisters, 224 is more toward the middle than 232, but is still a bigger hatchling.

    1b. The range of the lengths for the hatchlings of turtle 334 is 32.3mm-35.1mm. The difference between the biggest and smallest length is 2.8mm. The median length is 33.1mm.

    2b. The range of the weights for 334’s hatchlings is 8.5grams-9.3grams. The difference between the heaviest and lightest weights is 0.8grams. The median weight is 9.0grams.

    3b. Our turtle 232 falls just like 224, as one of the bigger turtles. 232 is the third longest and the second heaviest which makes 232 a bigger hatchling than most of the others.

    • Sorry I did not put all my post in by accident. Here is the last question:

      I would describe that it was a big change for turtle 334 because she had a steady amount of eggs (9) for the past three years that dropped to five eggs in 2011. I would describe turtle 3300 as her eggs were all over and they slightly increased this year, which is very unlike turtle 334’s eggs.

      I would attribute turtle 334 to maybe:
      • A new climate,
      • New nesting location, or
      • Being disturbed while nesting.

      Turtle 3300’s situation is very different. Her egg laying the past three years has been all over. I think she might be:
      • Moving different spots each year,
      • Different locations might entail different climates, or
      • It might have been that the place she was nesting offered distractions.

  21. 1. The range of lengths for the hatchlings of Turtle 3300 is 31.8mm through 34.8 mm. The difference between the lowest and highest lengths is 3mm. The median length is 33.65 mm.
    2. The range of weights for the hatchlings for turtle 3300 is 7.1g-9.4g .The difference of the weights is 2.3g. The median weight is 8.6g.
    3. Turtle 224 falls on the heavy side of the median weight at 9g. Turtle 224 falls on the longer side of the median length, at 33.7 mm.
    1. The range of lengths for the hatchlings of Turtle 334 is 32.3 mm through 35.1 mm. The difference between the lowest and highest length is 2.8 mm. The median length is 33.1 mm.
    2. The range of weights for the hatchlings of Turtle 334 is 8.5g. to 9.3 g. The difference between the lowest and heaviest weight is 0.8 g. The median weight is 9g.
    3. Turtle 232 falls at the median for length at 33.1 mm, and is on the heavier side of the median at 9.1 g.
    One turtle mother had eight hatchlings and the other had five hatchlings. The difference in number of live births could be because some of the eggs didn’t hatch. The hatchlings may have died in the egg, or a predator may have gotten them.

  22. 1. Turtle 3300 hatchlings length data.
    A) The median is 33.5mm.
    B) The difference is 3.0mm
    C) The range is 31.8 – 34.8mm
    D) Turtle 224 falls into the heavier category.
    Turtle 3300 hatchlings weight data.
    a) The range was7.1-9.4grams.
    b) The median is 8.6grams.
    c) The difference is 2.3grams
    d) Turtle 224 is closer to the median for weight.

    2. Turtle 334 hatchlings length data.
    A) The median is 33.1mm
    B) The difference is 2.9mm
    C) The range is 32.3 – 35.6mm.
    D) Turtle 232 falls into the lighter side.
    Turtle 334 hatchlings weight data.
    a) The range is 8.5-9.3grams.
    b) The difference is 0.8grams.
    c) The median is 9.0grams.
    d) Turtle 232 falls into the heavier category.
    3. Turtle 3300 had more hatchlings than turtle 334. I think this is because one is older than the other.

  23. 1. The range of turtle 3300 lengths is 31.8mm-34.8mm. The difference between lowest and the highest lengths is 3mm and the median length is 33.65.

    2. The range of the weights for turtle 3300 is 7.1g-9.4g. The difference between the weight is 2.3g and the median weight is 8.6g.

    3. Turtle 224 falls on the heavy side to the median weight at 9.g. Turtle 224 falls on the longer side to the median weight at 33.7g.

    1. The range of the lengths for turtle 334 is 32.3mm-35.1mm. The difference between lowest and highest is 2.8mm. The median of the lengths is 33.1.

    2. The range of the weights for turtle 334 is 8.5g-9.3g. The difference between the lowest and heaviest weight is 0.8g.

    3. Turtle 232 falls for the median length at 33.1mm and is on the heavier side at the median at 9.1g.

    A turtle mother had 8 hatchlings and another turtle had 5 the difference in number for live births may be because of predator.
