Discussion results to be argumentative about the relevance of results, theories, previous research, and empirical facts found and show novelty findings. The tables' use is highly recommendednot very long, and if necessaryenter a long table is then created in the Appendix or Appendix. Example presentation of tables and pictures/graphs In the results and discussion section at least contains: what / how elements, whether the data presented has been processed (not raw data), Showed in the table or figure form (choose one of them), and given a straightforward explanation understood.
