Question

You have heard that the average American male is 69.7 inches tall. Yet almost all of the adult males in your personal world seem to be between 5 and 6 feet tall, with a few just over 6 feet.

a. How would you attempt to show that the above statement of “less than 69.7 inches” is true? What evidence would you collect? What would the collected evidence need to show in order to convince you of the truth of the statement?
b. How would you attempt to disprove the above statement of “less than 69.7 inches”? What evidence would you collect? What would the collected evidence need to show in order to disprove the statement?
c. Would it be easier to prove that “less than 69.7 inches” is true or to disprove it? Explain.
