Results and Discussion

**In dealing with numerical results, it is essential to assess both the accuracy and precision
**

of the data at hand. In experiment one, different data sets were compared and assessed

using basic statistical concepts [2].

**Weighing by difference was used to measure the weight of every individual 25-centavo
**

coin. Weighing by difference measures the mass of an object by repetitive weighings. As

a coin is removed from the analytical balance, with the use of forceps, the total mass is

decreased. The difference in the two masses represents the mass of the coin that was

taken out of the analytical balance, hence it’s called weighing by difference [1].

**Grubbs’ test was used to confirm if a suspected value, within the data collected, is an
**

outlier or not. For both data sets, sample four (4) is the highest value while sample one

(1) is the lowest value for data set one, and sample ten (10) is the lowest value for data

set two. After assessing the suspected values, sample four (4) for both data sets had the

highest difference with the data set mean in both data sets.

**If the calculated grubbs’ test value for sample four (4) is greater than the expected
**

grubbs’ value, then sample four (4) is an outlier. The suspected outlier, X4 = 3.7709, is

rejected since Gexp, n=6 = 1.9705 > G95%, n=6 = 1.8871 for data set one [2]. The same can

be concluded for data set two.

Table 1 below shows the result of the Grubbs’ test upon using values with the highest

difference to the data set mean.

Grubbs’ test checks distributed data for outliers. The Grubbs test always checks

the value which shows the largest absolute deviated from the computed mean.
