For your first assignment you are asked to work with the data in the spreadsheet titled “Concert Sales” to demonstrate your understanding of descriptive statistics.
There are a number of ways to do this. For example, you can choose
· measures of central tendency (mean, median, mode, proportion),
· measures of dispersion (range, variance, standard deviation), and
· frequency distributions and histograms.
Choose three different ways/measures and carry them out directly in the spreadsheet. Save your spreadsheet with your Firstname_lastname and submit it in the designated area. You will need the ToolPak add-on for Excel. You can find instructions here: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/load-the-analysis-toolpak-in-excel-6a63e598-cd6d-42e3-9317-6b40ba1a66b4.
Please note, it is your responsibility to have the correct software. If you do not have MS Excel, please contact your student advisor.
