First of all, this forum newbie is so excited to find this site! I know it'll help! So I just need a little direction on the concept of the final number I came up with. I have calculated the Mean, Standard Deviation, and Coefficiant of Variation for two categories with two sets within them. They are the following: Category 1 Average size of leaves that have already fallen off the tree have a mean size of : 2.17 inches Average size of leaves that are still attached to a tree has the mean size of: 2.33 inches. Standard Deviation for fallen leaves are: 0.46 Standard Deviation for attached leaves are: 0.27 Coefficient of Variation of fallen leaves are:“0.21% Coefficient of Variation of attached leaves are: “0.12% Category 2 Set 1: Average amount of eggs laid by a snail in 24 hours is:67.66 Set 2: Average amount of eggs laid by a snail in 24 hours is:64.17 Sd Set 1:2.25 SD Set 2:2.79 COV Set 1:0.03% COV Set 2:0.04% Now that I have the data, what can I gather from this? I really do not understand what the COV interprets. I googled 'what COV represents" but I still don't understand. I'm suppose to compare the leaves COV and also compare the snails COV, then compare them against eachother. I really have no idea how to apply this data into an explanitory summary. I'm not asking for anything detail just some help on directing my thoughts. Please?

If you have the actual data sets you can do ANOVA.. I don't really know what you're asking.
