You are required to collect humidity of any city for ten consecutive days. Once you have collected the data for ten days, you are required to prepare a report undertaking followings:

1. Arrange the data in a table format. (5 marks)

2. Present the data using any two types of appropriate charts of your choice. Example: Column chart, scatter plot, line chart, pictograms, bar chart etc. (10 marks)

3. Calculate and discuss the followings. Please provide the steps for the calculation and highlight the final value.

I. Mean (8 marks)

II. Median (8 marks)

III. Mode (8 marks)

IV. Range (8 marks)

V. Standard Deviation (13 marks)

4. For your data, use the linear forecasting model which is y = mx + c to calculate and discuss the followings:

I. Show the steps of calculation of m value and discuss the answer. (15 marks)

II. Show the steps of calculation of c value and discuss the answer. (15 marks)

III. Using the calculated `m` and `c` values, forecast the humidity on day 11 and day 13.  (10 marks)

Hint - Use the following formulas to calculate the ‘m’ and ‘c’ values.

m =                                c =
