-   -   Survey for my Stats Class: Rope length (http://www.wakeworld.com/forum/showthread.php?t=104067)

oldschool 03-17-2004 10:44 AM

Thanks for opening this discussion. <BR> <BR>I have a project due in my Statistics class and I need to gather some data. I am hoping to get at least 40 responses to this survey. I am trying to predict what the rope length will be for someone in relation to the years of experience they have. Here's the survey: <BR> <BR>1. What is the length of rope (from the boat to the handle) you use when wakeboarding under normal conditions? <BR>2. How many years have you been wakeboarding? <BR>3. Are you male or female? <BR> <BR>Normal conditions are considered your average riding spot, boat setup, and weather. I know this survey is short and there could be many other variables to examine, but I have set this up to meet the professor's criteria for gathering data. <BR> <BR>Thanks everyone! I'll post the results once I get over 40 responses and plug the data into the formulas. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by oldschool on March 17, 2004)

75' <BR> <BR>8 years including 2003, or 7 through 2002 because I became injured at the beginning of last season. So use that as you wish. <BR> <BR>F <BR> <BR>(Message edited by electricsnow on March 17, 2004)

Awesome! I'll cap it off with the legendary Mike Novak. I have a great mix of data here to work with so I am going to use what has been posted so far. <BR> <BR>Thank you everyone for helping me out and answering the survey so fast. I'll post a follow-up discussion to let you all know the statistics on this. Hopefully I can dazzle you with some fancy mathematical lingo.
