What's fashion got to do with statistics? The TES' Mathagony Aunt Wendy Fortescue-Hubbard visits Carnaby Street to find the connection and hook the students. She visits a fashionable boutique and talks to the owner.
Students at Vyners School look at clothes sizes and shoe sizes and decide which average is useful. Would the mode or median be useful in ordering stock? What do these averages tell you?
We see how statistics are used in shops to help identify trends. Mathagony Aunt discovers that there's a common size ratio for clothes sizes and it's in the ratio of 1:2:2:1.
