# Each of the following coins is photographed to scale. Measure each using a metric ruler (in cm) and record the diameter to the precision reflected in the ruler. Make a simple graph of the value of the coin ( x -axis) and the diameter of the coin ( y -axis). Is there any correlation between these two quantities? Which coin does not fit the general trend?

## Each of the following coins is photographed to scale. Measure each using a metric ruler (in cm) and record the diameter to the precision reflected in the ruler. Make a simple graph of the value of the coin (x-axis) and the diameter of the coin (y-axis). Is there any correlation between these two quantities? Which coin does not fit the general trend?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The diameter of the given coins is to be determined, and the diameter and value of the coins are to be represented graphically.

Concept Introduction:

Graphs are used to depict the change in one quantity in relation to the change in another quantity in the given set of data. These are easy to analyze and provide a clear picture of the scenario.

In graphs, one of the quantities is plotted on the y-axis and is termed as the dependent variable. The other quantity is plotted on the x-axis and is called the independent variable. The change in the dependent variable is dependent on the change in the independent variable.

It can be used to calculate the various trends in that quantity over a certain period of observations. For example, decrease or increase, average decrease or increase and percentage increase or decrease.

### Explanation of Solution

The data is as follows:

Diameter of one cent coin = 1.8 cmDiameter of a five cent coin = 2.0 cmDiameter of a dime = 1.6 cm

Diameter of a quarter dollar = 2
