Abstract

The purpose of this project was to see whether a person's blood pressure alters as the body ages. This project was thought of due to curiosity of whether the blood pressure was related to natural death or not. This project is here to test that theory. This project was done in a few easy steps. First you get your sphygmomanometer. Then, you check the blood pressure, the direct variable, ask the volunteer's age, which is the independent variable, and collect the data. After the data is collected then you see how the data is similar or different. The results of this project showed that there is no significant change in a person's blood pressure as they age. The normal number is still 120/80. Because these results did not support the hypothesis. Therefore the null hypothesis was supported.
