Results section of practical investigation (biology /human physiology)

Hi

Im consolidating my data from my low/high stress participants and looking at the response times in millisecond results. Some of the numbers are really long eg. 0.429798 milliseconds. Should I be rounding these numbers up or off to make 0.430 for example. Or should I keep them as they are? Ive already wasted time doing my descriptive stastistics table calcultions on the numbers of high stressed low stressed people than on the timings and dont want to make another mistake when I have just a few days to finish it....!

Thanks for any help in this

Hi

It's ok to round the numbers to two decimal places and you'll probably find them easier to work with in this format and less likely to make errors in calculations
Good luck finishing off :thumbup:
