# Help with Daughter's School Assignment - Take 5 Seconds to Answer a Simple Question

Hi Ozbargainers,

My daughter has to create a bunch of statistics and graphs for the following proposition in year 9 maths: How long do people spend in the shower?

If you could take a few seconds to reply with this info that would be great:

1. Gender: M/F
2. Time taken in last shower you took (an estimate is fine)

Thanks everyone :-)

Excel. =Rand(). You're welcome.

Let me guess, you work for the ABS ;-)

He works for IBM that took care of the Census last year :-)

ABS

Rand() is how they fill in all the missing Census data.

Are you one of my offshore Indian developers?! What have i told you time and time again about this?! We run a professional operation here! You're fired! LOL :D

Wow thanks everyone for taking the time to help my daughter - she has the data now in her spreadhseet and will get to work on the rest of the assignment. I think seeing real people answer a survey is probably one of the more important parts of the task! So thanks!!

Male, 28 minutes.
Female 16 minutes.

28mins!?

yeah, teen son takes forever.

Do you wonder why?

Turn off the wifi and he'll be out of there in no time

I do not think it is the wifi that keeps him busy in the shower.
I am sure something else is up!
:-)

something else is up

You bet that something is up alright

Turn off the wifi and he'll be out of there in no time

On the contrary, he could take longer.

@Diji1:

I'm not silly mate. ðŸ˜€

Gotta make sure there is a happy ending

I remember a friend and I caught his little brother going to town on himself.. First thing he said was "I was itching it"

We so wanted to tell this story at his wedding but he begged us not to tell

He's just making sure he's extra clean ðŸ˜€

@Scrooge McDuck: How long do you think the average two-spirit person takes?

How long do you think the average two-spirit person takes?

It depends on the individual, but generally takes longer the more they've had to drink.

@kiitos: and that's hot water, image a cold shower - you would never find it ðŸ˜€

Im curious by the sub 10 min males… do you have really short hair, are bold?

bold bald

Turning Point 2in1 and shortish hair.

Generally bald, but leave a snail trail on occasions.

Shaver? Razor?

M-5/7 minutes

couldnt you just have made up the data? Considering its for a yr9 project, I don't see much difference between fudging the numbers yourself and asking people on the internet to fudge the numbers for you

fudging the numbers yourself

No no, that's next year.

•

Lol the teacher will be wondering why they asked so many males.

Ethics?

•

Its yr9… im pretty sure the teacher is more concerned about what the students do with the data than the collection itself.

The teacher probably wanted the student to go and talk to heaps of different people. Hence, you could say getting the parents to ask people on a bargain website to guess the time to be unethical

Male
4min

If anything, this is a better gauge of how many Ozbargainers are male…

I am completely amazed at how long people spend in the shower! Half an hour - that is crazy!

Looks like they have plenty of stats for male, sadly it appears female Ozbargain users are quite rare in comparison.

An assignment like this has more to it. The social aspect is simply not being met here.
That assignment meant she would have interacted 10-12 different ppl with. Ohh yeah, OzB is social though? But face to face interaction?
