# Data collection and conclusions — Harder example

Watch Sal work through a harder Data collections and conclusions problem.

• It doesn't seem that hard, just really, really long.
• Choice number1 didn't convince me, what's the relationship between players being part of the team and being born between January 1 and June 30?
• if you notice, 10 out of 12 were born in the first half of a year. and 10/12 is about 85% which is pretty high for data based on just 12 people
• Anyone have a faster method? Spending the time to write out and plot those points seems too long to be viable during the SAT.
• Here's how I would've solved the problem:

I is correct, because there are only two players not born between January 1st and June 30th (the last two players).

II. is incorrect because I is correct.

III. is incorrect because the table doesn't say anything about the skill of the players.

IV. is correct. You can know that by counting the players who are born in 1987.

Thus, I would've solved this in about a minute. Maybe this question isn't that hard, after all. :)
• It's 2007 in the question, but he says 2017.
• Is there a faster method of solving for this type of problem?
• Does it mean there is an association between two events if the number seems like there is one?
• if you notice, 10 out of 12 were born in the first half of a year. and 10/12 is about 85% which is pretty high for data based on just 12 people
