LAB 1 Background and Hypothesis:
I know I haven’t passed the lab 1 H and B but I really do not want to lose points again just for the fact I didn’t get it done in time. I already lost -5 pts and I really don’t want to lose -20 pts.
So I am just gonna go on a whim here and just get it done through here so it doesn’t automatically fail me without me at least trying.

Background: Test to see if people who are Left Handed would be left thumb dominant and compare to see people who are Right Handed to be more inclined to be right thumb dominant or if there is any opposing examples that show a Right handed person to have a left thumb dominant when they clamp their hands together.
Hypothesis: When someone is Right handed, they more likely to be Right Thumb Dominant or left hand dominant? Is there more right thumb dominant people than there are left thumb dominant people?
