Q17: You have decided to test the effects of five garden fertilizers by applying some of each to separate rows of radishes. What is the variable you are testing? What factors should you control? How will you measure and analyze the results? Answer: The type of fertilizer is the variable being tested. Control factors are the types of radishes, the amount of water and the amount of sunshine. One control row should be planted under the same control factors but with no fertilizer. There are at least to things that can be used to determine the results: size, quantity, appearance and taste. Analysis might include bar graphs of each of these measurements for each of the following fertilizer types and the no-fertilizer control row.
