What are my chances gitting attacked by a Opossum compared to a Shark?
purpose of this lab is to determine how safe it is to go into the ocean
compared to other events.
think that you are 11 times more likely to be attacked by a Shark than
a Opossum because I have never heard of an Opossum attacking someone, and
I have heard of a Shark attacking someone.
Barnett gave me a sheet with data on Shark attacks and Opossum attacks.
I looked at the data and I graphed this information.
Number of Attacks
Hypothesis was right and wrong. You ARE more likely to get bitten by a
Shark only by 12 times instead of 11 times. Our data showed 12 Shark Attacks
and only 1 Opossum attack.
