Methodology

Stress is a feeling that's created when we react to particular events. It’s the body's way of rising to a challenge and preparing to meet a tough situation with focus, strength, stamina, and heightened alertness.

Then since there are three sections in each year level, this also means that there should be 9 samples in one of the sections and eight samples from the other two sections.

In Chapter 4, the results of the survey will be shown. The results will be shown using some kinds of graphs. Pie graphs will be used to interpret the results of the samples. The researcher finds that Pie graphs are more suitable for the research study. The researcher would also like to use Bar graphs for this case to have it done more easily.

The researcher will tally the gathered results from each sample. After tallying the results, Pie graphs will be made based on the gathered results, in this case the readers will be able to understand the results of the samples. It was mentioned earlier that Stratified random sampling is used...
