You have completed an experiment to test the hypothesis: "If plant growth is dependent on nitrogen, then plants given more nitrogen will grow faster." You tested three sets of plants: set one received zero parts per million (ppm); set two received five ppm; set three received 10 ppm. Each set contained five plants. You watered each plant once a week for four weeks. You looked at plant height to determine if your hypothesis was supported. You represented the results in the bar graph below.
