Lecture 08/28/17 In order to calculate the statistics average score of 2000 students on USF campus, a sample of 70 students were interviewed and their scores were recorded as an average of 76.32. In this study, the average of 76.32 is an example of a STATISTIC. Continuous Variable: The total weight of 20 candies.
