The amount of M&Ms in a bag varies. So does the amount of each color. We were asked to count, graph, and
compare the information from our whole class. The method we used was sorting each color into piles and then
writing the amount down. Our information showed that all M&Ms were close except for the brown M&M. The
class information also showed that the brown M&Ms were the least common though it also showed a larger
range. Using some graphs would be better than others for this project. For example, we used a bar graph. A bar
graph is good for this project because it shows the amount of M&Ms and it makes it easy to see the data. Using
more than one bag of M&Ms is important because it shows if it is the same with many bags or if it is random.
The value of calculating M&Ms is that increases your skills in excel. This project compares to many of the lessons
we have been doing. In the conclusion of this project I believe that the amount of each color of M&Ms is mostly
random. Not completely random though. I think that more popular colors such as green are put more into the
bags than the less popular colors such as brown.
