How do you Compare quantitative and qualitative descriptions?

Quantitative is basically the numbers and figures of

whatever you have done.

Qualitative is the verbal use, so words and descriptions

for what you've done.

E.g.

At school, we did an experiment:

Purpose: to see if you put one hand in cold water and one hand

in hot water for 30 seconds and then put them both in tap water,

would one be hotter than the other?

So the quantitative results would be what temperature the

water was, how much water there was etc.

The qualitative results would be whether you felt the

water was hotter or not etc.
