My partner and I were supposed to find the percentage of each color of M&M in each bag.
Every group got a bag of M&Ms to count and see how many of each color they had. Then
everyone put their numbers into an excel document for everyone else to get their data.
Then, the separate groups found the percentage, sum, mean, mode, and median for
everyone's data on separate documents.  

Michelle and I sorted the M&Ms by putting them into piles of the same color. Then we
counted them and put them all in a pile. There aren't that many brown or yellow M&Ms in
the bags of M&Ms. Throughout the groups there was an average of 13.5 green M&Ms in
the bags. 

When the bar graph is a good one to use for information, the pie graph wouldn’t be such a
good idea because the pie graph might not include in the information. If there was more
than one bag of M&Ms there would be more counting. There would also be more of the
same color of M&Ms. Other projects I had to do research while on this one I had to do
count and do math.  

There was more green than every other color when they're added together. In just my
group, there was more red than every other color in the bag. Maybe that’s because a lot
of people like red and green M&Ms. Also, I think there might be more green and red
coloring for the M&Ms.
