Problem 2.4

Girls excel Is it true that girls perform better than boys in the study of languages and so-called soft sciences? Here are several Advanced Placement subjects and the percent of examinations taken by female candidates in 2007: English Language/Composition, 63%; French Language, 70%; Spanish Language, 64%; and Psychology, 65%.4 (a) Explain clearly why we cannot use a pie chart to display these data, even if we know the percent of exams taken by girls for every subject. (b) Make a bar graph of the data. Order the bars from tallest to shortest; this will make comparisons easier. (c) Do these data answer the question about whether girls perform better in these subject areas? Why or why not?
