Above Standard Example: The plants in acidic water grew more than the plants in basic water. The acidic
water caused 0.5 cm of growth with a standard deviation of 0.1 cm, meaning the average could range from 0.4
to 0.6 cm. The basic water had growth of 0.2 cm and a standard deviation of 0.05 cm, with an average that
ranges from 0.15 to 0.25 cm. The plants in acidic water grew 0.15 more cm than the plants in the basic water.
