Derrick just got home from playing soccer on a muddy field. He is curious how different brands of laundry detergent compare in removing mud from clothes, so he sets up an experiment. In one laundry load, he puts his muddy socks with Brand A detergent. In the next load, he puts his muddy jersey with Brand B detergent. In the final load, he puts his muddy shorts with Brand C detergent. Afterward, he noticed that the jersey came out the cleanest. He concludes that Brand B is the best detergent for removing mud from clothes. Is his conclusion valid?

An experimental control is something you use as a comparison to minimize the effects of other variables. A example of this is giving one crop of plants fertilizer. Then as a control you have a crop that is given no fertilizer. In this way you can tell what growth is from the fertilizer and what growth is not. For an experiment to mean anything you want to minimizing effects outside what you are trying to measure. Do you think he conducted this experiment in manner in which the results he obtained are credible. Did he make an effort to make sure all tests conducted were uniform?

The reason it is C is because he didn't wash the same materials, they would also have different levels of dirt likely (he didnt control for it) on them so it brings the whole experiment into question.
