32. It is time for Roger Hall, manager of new car sales at the Maxwell Ford
dealership, to submit his order for new Mustang coupes. These cars will be
parked in the lot, available for immediate sale to buyers who are not special-
ordering a car. One of the decisions Roger must make is how many Mustangs of
each color he should order. The new color options are very similar to the past
year’s options.
Roger believes that the colors chosen by customers who special-order their cars
best reflect most customers’ true color preferences. For that reason, he has taken
a random sample of 40 special orders for Mustang coupes placed in the past year.
The color preferences found in the sample are listed below.

33. Missy Walters owns a mail-order business specializing in clothing, linens, and
furniture for children. She is considering offering her customers a discount on
shipping charges for furniture based on the dollar-amount of the furniture order.
Before Missy decides the discount policy, she needs a better understanding of the
dollar-amount distribution of the furniture orders she receives.
Missy had an assistant randomly select 50 recent orders that included furniture.
The assistant recorded the value, to the nearest dollar, of the furniture portion of
each order. The data collected is listed below.
