  • 17. Life Expectancy by Country

    Order the countries by female life expectancy from least to greatest for 1980 and 2007. Compare the orders. (See Example 5 and Example 6.)

    • Worked-Out Solution

      1980

      Turkey: 60

      Germany: 76

      United States: 77

      Australia: 78

      Spain: 79

      2007

      Turkey: 76

      United States: 81

      Germany: 83

      Australia: 84

      Spain: 84

      Germany and the United States switched orders. Spain still has the greatest female life expectancy and Turkey still has the least female life expectancy.
