8. Krystyna investigated how a person’s pulse rate changes when they exercise. She tested
four of her friends. Belinda and Jasmina do a lot of sport. Jade and mara prefer to read books
and play computer games. Krystyna measured the four girls pulse rates, in beats per minute,
when they were relaxing, then she asked them to run up two flights of stairs, and measured
their pulse rates again. These are her results.
