Obtain an outdoor thermometer and record the temperature every day for one month. Be sure to record the temperature at the same time every day. Make a graph of your temperature beginning with day 1 and ending at day 30. Are there any trends in the temperature? If there is a trend, calculate the average daily change.

Obtain an outdoor thermometer and record the temperature every day for one month. Be sure to record the temperature at the same time every day. Make a graph of your temperature beginning with day 1 and ending at day 30. Are there any trends in the temperature? If there is a trend, calculate the average daily change.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The temperature for thirty days at the same time everyday is to be recorded and graphically represented.

Concept Introduction:

Graphs are used to depict the change in one quantity per unit to 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 a variable quantity over a certain period of observations. For example, decrease or increase, average decrease or increase and percentage increase or decrease etc.

Explanation of Solution

The data set of temperatures is as follows:

DateTemperature (°F)1.1.2019432.1.2019433.1.2019434.1.2019425.1.2019426.1.2019427.1.2019428.1.2019429.1.20194210.1.20194211.1.20194212.1.20194113.1.20194114.1.2014115.1.20194116
