Alden created a box plot for the calories in different brands of sodas as shown below.  

Box Plot: x axis, scaled by tens, from 0 to 160. Left whisker: 0 to 100. Box: 100 to 140 with vertical line at 120. Right whisker: 140 to 160.

  1. How do you think Alden collected the data for his box plot?

    Consider where Alden would have found the data and how he would have chosen the 11 different brands for his data set.

  2. According to this graph, give as complete a description about the calories of the brands of soda as you can? Consider the center, shape, spread, and outliers

    The smaller the segments of the graph are, the closer the data points are to each other. Note where most of the data points are.
