B:

The first 20 students to arrive at school on a particular day.

C:

The seventh grade students participating in a science fair put on by the four middle schools in a school district.

D:

E:

The students on the school debate team.

1. Find the mean number of cookies sold in the fall and in the spring.
2. The MAD for the fall data is 2.8 cookies. The MAD for the spring data is 2.6 cookies. Express the difference in means as a multiple of the larger MAD.
3. Based on this data, do you think that sales were generally higher in the spring than in the fall?
