Question | Answer |
---|---|

bar graph | a graph showing data in a series of bars |

biased | a question that leads to a specific response or excludes a certain group |

circle graph | a graph in the shape of a circle that shows data in slices of the circle |

prioritize | to put events in order of importance |

quotient | the number, not including the remainder, that results from dividing 35/7 = 5 |

random sample | a sample in which each individual or object in the population has an equal chance of being selected |

range | the difference between the greatest and the least number in a set of data |

relation | a set of ordered pairs(5,1) (10,2) (3,4) |

scale | the numbers placed at fixed distances on a graph to help label the graph |

probability | the chance that an event will occur expressed as the ratio of the number of favorable outcomes to the number of possible outcomes |
