Leilah Cordero2-26-2012Statistics DayBrian JeanCoke AnalysisABSTRACT: In progress.INTRODUCTION:I am doing a coke analysis based on the views of a consumer. Why am I doing this?Say you bought a 24 pack of Diet coke and there were a couple of cans that seemedless full, almost empty, or even completely empty. Would you want to buy thisproduct again? I know this has personally happened to me before and probably tomany others. One question that may be asked is “are the producers of this productdoing this on purpose to cheat us, or was this not intentional?” By doing this studywe can determine if we are being cheated or not. I will be weighing 15 randomlyselected cans of Diet Coke, Diet Pepsi, and Coke Zero. I will have available graphsand the weights of my cans that were selected. I will be using TC Stats to help mepick my random cans and to draw the graphs.METHODS: The first step in this study is to use TC Stats which is available on my iPad from theschool. Available to me were 85 cans of Diet Coke, 96 cans of Diet Pepsi, and 72cans of Coke Zero. Each can of Diet Coke was numbered 1-85, each can of DietPepsi was numbered 1-96, and each can of Coke Zero was numbered 1-72. By using
 
 TC Stats, I was able to put these numbered cans into the chart and then randomlyselect 15 numbers of each of these products. I started with one brand, picked mynumbered cans that were randomly selected and weighed each one of them. Afterweighing each of the cans from the first product I would chart them next to thenumber it was associated with. I repeated these steps for the other two brands. Iused a centigram weighing device that measured to the hundredths place. Seechart below.Chart 1. Coke Analysis

BOX AND WHISKER PLOTS
 
RESULTS:Based on the information I collected I was able to determine that the averageweight of the cans are not normally distributed. If you look at the Box and WhiskerPlots diagrams above it shows that all three products are skewed to the right. Theaverage weights of these products are as follows: Diet Coke is 372.684, Coke Zerois 371.917, and Diet Pepsi is 369.150. The minimum and maximum weight of DietCoke is 367.920 and 375.350, minimum and maximum weight of Coke Zero is368.460 and 374.530, and the minimum and maximum weight of Diet Pepsi is366.500 and 370.670. Based on these results it looks as if the cans are at therequired fill level. All of the cans were averaging around the same weight. If wetake a look at the histograms below it shows that either I had an error of weighingthe cans, or the cans may have been slightly under filled. Most of the cans wereaveraging a certain weight. I can say by the observation I took, that I was not
