Golf is one of my favorite games to play. Listed below are my scores for the last seven months. When playing golf, the lower your score, the better player you are. Par is 72 on most of the courses. Remember, the "pros" shoot under par!

SCORES: | 94 | 91 | 92 | 87 | 91 | 94 | 86 | 86 | 85 | 108 |

91 | 84 | 90 | 91 | 88 | 83 | 93 | 90 | 94 | 89 | |

89 | 85 | 91 | 89 | 91 | 91 | 83 | 86 |

Your task is to:

1. Make a graph of my scores.

2. State three conclusions you can interpret from your graph.

3. Find the mean, median, and mode for all my scores.

4. List the range of my scores.

5. State another conclusion you can make from the above information.

The second list of numbers is the amount of putts throughout my rounds. If you can one-putt every hole and score par, your percentage of putts to shots would be 25%. (18 out of 72). Below is a list of my putts for each game played.

Putts: | 36 | 34 | 35 | 33 | 34 | 32 | 30 | 31 | 30 | 38 |

35 | 34 | 34 | 34 | 34 | 35 | 30 | 29 | 28 | 36 | |

30 | 33 | 32 | 31 | 33 | 33 | 31 | 33 |

Your task is to:

1. Calculate the "3 M's".

2. Graph putts data.

3. Find the percentage of putts for each round.

4. Find the range of the percentages of putts.

5. State three conclusions can you make from the graph and the data collected.
