- Mars, Inc. states that 16% of all milk chocolate M&M’S® produced are green. A group of students took the following samples from a bowl of 500 mixed up M&M’S®.
**SAMPLE DATA ANALYSIS**- Twenty samples were collected for sample sizes n = 30 and n = 60. The results and corresponding dot plots are shown below.

- What is the specific question(s) that needs to be addressed in your investigation?
- What is the population of interest in the investigation?
- What is the population parameter of interest in the investigation?
- Why can we not realistically calculate the population parameter of interest directly?
- How could the concept of random sampling be used to investigate the population parameter of interest?
- What are we interested in finding out about each of the samples of M&M’S®?
- What information do we need in order to answer our question or investigate the claim that 16% of milk chocolate M&M’S® produced by Mars, Inc. are green? How can we use the samples of M&M’S® to obtain this information?
- What value is at the center of the dot plot constructed by using one sample per group? Is it a coincidence that the value is close to/far from the 16% claimed by Mars, Incorporated?
- Mars, Inc. claimed that 16% of milk chocolate M&M’S® produced are green. Does the information on the dot plot seem to support this claim? Why or why not?
