A school's art club holds a bake sale on Fridays to raise money for art supplies. Here are the number of cookies they sold each week in the fall and in the spring:
- Find the mean number of cookies sold in the fall and in the spring.

- Based on this data, do you think that sales were generally higher in the spring than in the fall?
