On October 25, we conducted our second sampling. Same process with the first one, but we are a little bit excited since we already have data from our first sampling and that we can now gauge our progress.
The objective again is to have a growth rate of at least 3 grams per day. It was 18 days apart so simple mathematics:
Desired Average Weight gained = 3 x 18
= 54 grams
Our Sample gave us an average of 154 grams. Our average weight on October 7 is around 85 grams.
This means that our
Actual Average weight gained = 154 - 85
= 69 grams
This result is quite promising and a reason to be little bit happy as we are 15 grams ahead of the average, at the moment. But this is not a cause of celebration as we have still a long way to go.
