Once you have your data, you will make any calculations you need for the analysis. It is almost always productive to produce graphs and charts of your data to help you understand and visualize your data.

The analysis leads you to the most important question – does your data support your hypothesis?

Your conclusion is a short statement of your experiments results and how they relate to your hypothesis. Once again, don't worry if your results contradict your hypothesis – a negative result is just as interesting.
