Read the scenario and use your knowledge of descriptive statistics to answer the prompt.
You are the marketing manager at The Best Candy Shop where the top sales item is the Dream Pop bags of flavored candies. You have been getting complaints from customers that there are not enough lemon or blueberry flavored candies, which are favorites, and too many grape and strawberry flavored candies. Your boss wants you to create an advertisement indicating, “all bags have equally likely flavors.” (That is, the probability of getting a strawberry flavored candy piece is the same as getting a blueberry flavored candy piece, etc.).
As the marketing manager, you want to make sure you are advertising truthful information, so you pull a sample bag of Dream Pop candy and find the following pieces:
• 16 grape flavors
• 12 strawberry flavors
• 6 lemon flavors
• 6 blueberry flavors
• Explain how you could communicate to your boss that his advertising suggestion (all bags have equally likely flavors) would be incorrect. You must include at least two (2) probabilities from your sample bag of candy that would deem his advice inaccurate
