Free groceries To attract shoppers, a supermarket runs a weekly contest that involves scratch-off cards. With each purchase, customers get a card with a black spot obscuring a message. When the spot is scratched away, most of the cards simply say, Sorryplease try again. But during the week, 100 customers will get cards that make them eligible for a drawing for free groceries. Ten of the cards say they may be worth $200, 10 others say $100, 20 may be worth $50, and the rest could be worth $20. To register those cards, customers write their names on them and put them in a barrel at the front of the store. At the end of the week the store manager draws cards at random, awarding the lucky customers free groceries in the amount specified on their card. The drawings continue until the store has given away more than $500 of free groceries. Estimate the average number of winners each week.

Stats 401 Week 2 Relative frequency = How many times appeared in category ÷ Total items in category (like finding percent without multiplying by 100 at the end) For the median, if there is an even amount of number given then add the two middle terms then divide by 2. EX: 1 2 3 4 5 6. The two middle terms are 3 and 4 so 3 + 4 = 7. Then 7/2 = 3.5 (finding the average of those numbers). If there isn’t a mode (1 2 3 4 5 6) then write “NO MODE” not “The mode is zero” because that implies that there is the number 0 and that is what appears the most. Peak of curve is in the middle When the mean = median = mode the distribution is bell shaped or symmetric. Median > mean then it is left skewed Med
