1) A record store owner wants to determine consumer tastes. She decides to observe customers in her store on a particular day and record the number of minutes the each spends in the Alternative Music and Rap sections of the store. She came up with the following data:

Alternative Music Rap

Mean = x = 25 Mean = 20
