Problem 9BSC

Harry Potter Listed below are the gross amounts (in millions of dollars) earned in box office receipts for the movie Harry Potter and the Half­Blood Prince. The movie opened on a Wednesday, and the amounts are listed in order for the first 14 days of the movie's release. What important feature of the data is not revealed through the different measures of center? What is an explanation for the fact that the three highest amounts are the first, third, and fourth values listed?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 9BSC

1. The mean amounts earned in box office receipts for the movie Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is \$16.4 million.
2. The median amounts earned in box office receipts for the movie Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is \$10 million.
3. We know that mode is the value that repeats maximum number of times in the given data set. In the given data set the values 4, 9 and 10 each repeated twice. Therefore, the modal amounts earned in box office receipts for the movie Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is \$4 million, \$9 million, and \$10 million.
4. the midrange amounts earned in box office receipts for the movie Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is \$31 million.

The measures of center do not reveal any thing about the pattern of data over time and is the key component of a movie’s success. The first day’s gross is \$58 million, which is the highest, since most of the fans watch the movie on opening day. The third and fourth figures are \$27 million and \$ 29 million corresponding to first Friday and first Saturday, the weekend days and most of them are watching movies in weekend days. These are the various reasons for the highest gross amounts in the given data set.
