I am going to pick three different kinds of apples, for example red delicious, macintosh, and granny smith, I am going to get three of each type around the same size and weigh them each. After weighing each different apple I am going to see how many seeds are in each apple.

I am predicting that the apples with the more seeds will weigh more.


Experiment:
I changed my experiment from what I was going to originally do. I choose to use 30 of the same type of apples .The apples that were used were Gala apples. For this experiment the weight each apple was recorded in ounces. After weighing the apples they were cut open and the seeds were counted.

Correlation of Determination: 28.53 %

Least Square Regression equation: Y= -0.1178X+5.2277

After finishing the experiment I did not feel that there was any direct correlation between the amount of seeds in the apple and the weight of the apple. If you look at the apples that weigh 4.25 you will notice that the amount of seeds range from 2-8 seeds in the apple. I did notice that the large apples that weighed 5.25-6.25 had fewer seeds in the apple. I had expected that there would be more seeds in the apples that weighed more. This experiment determined that the size of the apple didn't determine the amount of seeds that were going to be in the apple. I think that there must be different variables that are involved in determining the weight of the apples and the seeds that are in the apple.
