The project that my partner and I did was an M&M analysis. What we
did was we opened a bag of M&Ms and counted how many M&MS
there were of each color. In our bag there were more orange and green
than any other color. For the other colors there were either eight or six.
This showed me that they distribute most of the candies evenly but
others they didn't. To show this I used a pie graph. This helped me see
that the amount of each M&M was kind of even but, some parts were
bigger than others. I think that the best graph to choose was a pie graph
because it put the pieces next to each other so I could see them and
compare. I looked at the class M&M chart and all of the bags had a total
that was in the 50's but the colors were distributed unevenly. One bag
had 17 red and 16 orange and the rest were below 10. I think that the
M&Ms need to have all six colors in them and two of the M&M
numbers need to be higher than ten. But it all has to be between 50
