This is the data table based o
n the Mythbusters’ results. Calculate the amount of water absorbed in
each trial, and the water absorbed per second for each trial.

Calculate the average amount of water absorbed in the running and walking trials:Avg. Water Absorbed (Running) =Avg. Water Absorbed (Walking) =13.
Based on the data recorded in the table above, generate a
. Mark the walking
trials on the graph with an “x”, and the running trials with an “o”. The independent variable
should go on the x-axis, and the dependent variable on the y-axis. Label both axes!14.
Next, generate a
based on the average water absorbed running and walking.
