Notice how the fast foods Interquartile Range is closer to the max value and the regular meat’s Interquartile Range is closer to the minimum value.

Fast Food


  • The centers of these two data sets are not similar at all. The fast food center is significantly higher than the homemade meat. For example, the mean of the grams of fat from the fast food is 27.275 whereas the mean for the regular meat is only 12.76.

  • The two data sets variations are similar as they are both skewed to the right. This shows that the data values are decreasing as they move to the right.

  • The five number-summaries of the data sets are not similar at all. The fast food values are higher than the regular meat’s values. For example, the maximum value for the fast food is 66 grams whereas the regular meat’s maximum value is 31.3 grams.

  • This data shows us how much higher the grams of fat value are in fast food meat compared to regular meat. It makes us realize how unhealthy this fast food is and how different it is from home-made meat. It makes people think twice about going out to eat at a fast food restaurant.
