Standard deviation, variance..
Okay. So i'm pretty new at this, but i desperately need any help i can get. In maths, we were given the statement "where do you get the best weather?", my hypothesis for this is "countries closer to the equator have a higher average temperature than countries further away from it (for example, countries closer to the north pole). What can i use to prove this hypothesis? (Graphs, statistics, ect..)

Thanks!

It depends how you define "best weather"...

Exactly! We weren't given a definition of what was meant by "best weather".
