Sour Patch Kids. How sweet of a deal are you really getting?. By Kelly Culp, Ashley Hall, and Amanda Simo. Overview of our project. We wanted to research how many Sour Patch Kids were distributed in a bulk bag
How sweet of a deal are you really getting?

Distribution of the population of sour patch colors remains very even. The means all colors fall within the 1.6-1.7 range.
Yellow has a outlier of 7 and red has an outlier of 6.
Distributions are slightly right skewed and unimodal.
Red and yellow colored sour patch have outliers.
Our histograms show that the sour patch kids packets have a left skewed distribution, and are unimodal. Our range for the amount in each packet is from 0-10.
Our scatter plot shows that the weight and amount of sour patch kids is linear. As the amount of sour patch kids in each packet increases, the weight of the packet increases.
* These box plots appear similar because as we showed before, the amount and weight have a linear relationship.
Our box plot shows that BJs appears to have a more even distribution of the amount of candies, and only two outliers. While Costco has 6 outliers. Costco has a greater range and smaller IQR, while BJs has a much large IQR but a smaller range.
The weight of the candies appears to be slightly left skewed for both box plots between both stores. However, Costco has a smaller IQR, while BJs has a smaller range.
