# Data collection and conclusions — Basic example

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

## Want to join the conversation?

• Is the use of calculator allowed in the digital SAT
• yes, the use of calculator is allowed through out the whole math section of the SAT
• Isn't it causation rather than causality?
• You just need to understand the concepts not to learn the terms for SAT.

• I'm afraid this is the easiest video about Data collection. What's the part you didn't get?
• Hi, I had a question about specifically comparing the mean, median, and/or mode while analyzing data distributions such as bar graphs, scatter plots, and etc. Is there a video that can help me with that? If there can be a video on each type of distribution that would be nice.
• uhhhhh ehhh
• what is a simple definition of a population?
• A group of people for which we want to estimate a parameter.
• I don't think that option A is correct unless we rewrite it as: "Most people who like a certain American movie will like its Indian remake"

• Answer choice A) says "Most people who like the original movie will like the remake." Using "the" instead of "a" here makes it clear that we're talking about the same certain American movie as the question was talking about. It's the same thing as saying "Most people who like a certain American movie", so is a fine answer in my opinion.
• What grade level or subject would cover data collection and conclusion? Like a how linear and exponential growth would be in the algerbra subjects here on Khan Academy, what would data collection and conclusions be under, or at least start its foundation?
