Shoe Size [(male) or (female)] V. Current # of items in your Pocket
12 (m)

9.5 (m)

10^3 (MAN)

9.5 (men's)

So here we see to random numbers of data and how they correlate. before this data was collected, I wanted to see if shoe size corresponded to amount of items in there pockets. I expected the bigger the shoe size, the less stuff they would have in there pockets, because they could fit that stuff in there shoes. This was not exactly the case.The data instead shows us absolutely nothing. The amount of things in people's pockets is actually kinda interesting. We would expect maybe a wallet or some keys or a cell phone, but for one female, this was not the case. Men seam to be have more items in there pockets then women, but we don't see a shoe size correspond to this number. Although I usually only like to have numbers collected for data, the shoes data would not be correctly taken without specification for male or female. This however let's us to have deeper insight into the amount of items in there pockets. The data may be skewed from the fact that they were all attending lecture and were planning to sit down and take notes, rather then tour a city or something where there pockets were there last resort to stow items away. This data is unfortunately relatively short, because of tardiness of the students to this lecture.
