Abstract
The purpose of this paper is to provide a written report of the five part M&M project. Part one was sampling. We were to purchase 3 bags of M&M and record the color counts of each bag in an Excel spread sheet. For part two we calculated the sample proportions for each color, the mean number of candies per1.69oz bag, created a histogram for the number of candies per bag, use Excel to compute the descriptive statistics for the total number of candies per bag and summarize the information. In part three we located the 95% confidence interval for the proportion of blue, orange, green, yellow, red and brown. For part four we tested claims for percentages of each color. In the final part of the project we tested the hypothesis that the population proportions of red and brown were equal. This report will explain what was done, present the results and provide an analysis of what was found. Title

This reported is presented on the statistical data investigated on M&Ms. This report contains information on the average number of candies per bag and sample proportions. We have conducted tests to ensure that our proportions, going into each bag of m&ms, are on target. We have also conducted hypothesis testing to ensure that our average number of m&ms per bag is on target as well. Project Part 1: Sampling Method

The first assignment was to collect three 1.69oz bags of plain M&Ms from different stores. We were to count each other color in each bag and record the information on a spread sheet in Excel. The students’ personal samplings were combined to create the full random sample. Project Part 2: Method, Analysis, Results

For this portion of the report we calculated the sample proportions for each color and the mean, or average number of candies per bag, number of candies per 1.69oz bag. We also created a histogram for the number of candies per bag and summarized the total number of calculated proportions. The sample standard deviation was also calculated. A...

Abstract
This experimental study will help explain some of the statistical concepts being taught in the classroom as well as show different examples of how these methods can be used. We will be using the 1.69 oz size bag of plain M&M candies which are for the purpose of convenience and affordability. From a larger perspective, we...

Statistics 300
23June2013
First to get started with the project three 1.69 ounce bags of plain M&M’s were
purchased from Shoppers, and 2 7-11’s. These bags will help with taking a sample of the
population that is produced. Purchasing the bags from three different stores will help with the
results of the project being meaningful because it is assured that the samples will be...

M&Ms® Project
Part 5 (3 pts)
Using the methods in Section 8.4, test the hypothesis (α = 0.05) that the population proportions of red and brown are equal (pred = pbrown). You are testing if their proportions are equal to one another, NOT if they are equal to one another AND equal to 13%. NOTE: These are NOT independent samples, but we will use this approach anyway to practice the method. This also means that n1 and n2 will both be the total number...

Abstract
Statistics is not an easy topic for your everyday person to pick up and make it easy for them to understand. Equations and hypothesis and the like can be overwhelming and confusing. But what about when you relate it to something that is common in everyday life? Throughout the semester we were given the task to evaluate M&Ms in a few different statistical ways. Throughout this report the goal is...

Purpose of Report
The purpose of this project is to find the information for a quality control manager of Masterfoods plant. The manager wants to know about the proportion of candies and if they are the same or different. If there is any difference that exists then the manager wants to know why there is a difference in such...

...M&Ms® Project Report
The purpose of this report is to explain the five steps that were taken from bags of m&m’s to analysis and examines a method for quality. Some of the aspects of the project were to use a random sample to gather and analyze data on the breakdown of color and count. At the end of the projects and steps we should have a better understanding of why m&m’s are packaged they way they are....
