Mary did a comparison of her favorite coffee brands. More than half of the stores priced the coffee at $1.70. Most of the stores left sold the coffee at $1.80, except for a few of them who sold it at $1.90. How would you define the distribution of prices?
Correct
Please note that the statement “Over half the stores priced the coffee at $1.70” serves as your clue. This means that $1.70 serves as the mode. The mean would be more than $1.70 because other stores sold the coffee for more than $1.70.
