**Learning Target:** Use relative frequency (percents) to compare data in two-way tables.

**Handouts:** Analyzing Two-Way Tables (Turn in: Wed, 4/18)

The whole point of making these two-way tables and relative frequency two-way tables is to analyze data and make conclusions about the information. That was our focus today.

Remember, the focus of your conclusion will depend on which relative frequency table that you are writing about. Look at the examples from our notes:

The percents in the first table are based on gender, so first pick a gender column. Then, look at the data in the column to see what it tells you. For example, if I chose boys, then I could say **“Boys like scary movies. I know this because 75.7% of boys like scary movies.”** If I chose girls, then I could say **“Girls are split pretty evenly about scary movies. I know this because 52.2% of girls like scary movies and 47.8% of girls don’t.”**

The percents in the second table are based on opinions of scary movies, so first pick a row about scary movies. If I chose liking scary movies, then I could say **“Kids who like scary movies are mostly boys. I know this because 70% of the kids who like scary movies are boys.”** If I chose not liking scary movies, then I could say **“Kids who do not like scary movies are split pretty evenly among boys and girls. I know this because 55% of kids who don’t like scary movies are girls and 45% are boys.”**

To justify your statement, use data from the relative frequency table. In other words, use the percentages!

Your homework is to finish #1-4. Don’t forget that we have a quiz on Friday!
