So for number two, we need to take a look back. At the information we had from number one, the the X bar of the Pacific Average was a total of 7912 dollars and 50 cents. The average for the South Central states Waas 6000 $460.70 says All right, so are 75 cents. All right, so, um, the question for number two, though, is asking which of these means is, um, a better representative for a center of dad being Which one's closer to being in the middle. So in order to answer that question, we need order right out the order of the values, um, for the Pacific and reorder out the values for the southwest central and kind of see where the averages will lie within that list. So Pacific started off with the lowest number being 7039. Then it was 7405. Then it was 7642 and that was 9564. So if we look at that in order from left to right, and then we insert about where our average would be our ever just somewhere in this area for me, so that doesn't seem very centralized. But we still want to make sure that the other one is not even more skewed, left or skewed. Right? So we will go and do that next. They were going to order the values of the Southwest Central States monies, and we're going to have 6000 229. We're going toe have 6000 276 were going toe have 5 6067 and oops, I skipped in them Rescue 66567 out perfect and 6700 said What? So our average was 60 6400 or so, so it's going to be somewhere in here. So since the average for the $6400.75 is more centralized, that's going to be our answer. Um, for this problem
