So amazing seeing all these potato's cooked in different ways. Thank goodness we don’t have a potato famine! Overall the top ways to have a potato have to be: Mashed, Bakes and Fried. Let’s take a look at what this would look like in a histogram.


So it’s clear we have a 4-way-tie for the types of potatoes people like. This is more likely due to a smaller sample size, then a equality in preferences. No matter how they are cooked, Potato's are a great source of carbohydrates!
If we pause now, and focus our attention on the right hand collumn, where we see how long it has been since people had their last hair cut. With this data from survey participants we could calculate how long their hair has grown from their last hair cut.Where we assume the average growth rate of hair is 0.5 inches/month and we know the time since the last hair cut, we compute the following Lengths of hair by people since their last hair cut.


So we can see, for the present day, that people let their hair grow a short distance of an inch or two, or will wait a while for a new hair cut. This could be a distinction between males and females in the class. Either way, it’s very interesting to see how often people cut their hair. If only we asked how much they got cut off, we could do a follow up survey and really learn about how often barbershops get busy.

I'd probably shrivel away if there to be a potato famine! LOL. I like my potatoes mashed or roasted. Hmm, it depends on the main course. I see, only half like raw and chips. Well, I just cut my hair yesterday! I have my own razor. Yes, I believe only a few people want to have long hair.
