introduction

this survey has been developed to determine if there is any correlation between
the number of feet a person has grown and the size shoe they wear upon these
feet (or foot).

conclusion

after an extensive analysis of the current set of figures, we failed to
notice any trend between the number of feet and the shoe size.

while this result may seen disappointing, keep in mind that the above
figures represent but a small cross-section of the population, and with
a larger number of responses, a more accurate result can be achieved.

an expert's opinion

i must say, i am a lot more optimistic about your results than you appear to
be. You describe them as "disappointing", but you surely cannot have failed
to notice the linear relationship between the variables exhibited on the
graph. i can only assume that you were seeking a more elaborate formula, so
please do not consider me impertinent if i entreat you to remember that the
simplest results are often the most informative.

thank you stephen, and yes, you provide a valid point, however i'm still
somewhat disappointed that everyone surveyed has the same number of feet.
so if you know anyone with more or less than two feet, i'd be **very**
interested in knowing what size shoe they wear.
