13.1: The Plot of the Story

Here are two dot plots and two stories. Match each story with a dot plot that could represent it. Be prepared to explain your reasoning.

Twenty people—high school students, parents, guardians, and teachers—attended a rehearsal for a high school musical. The mean age was 38.5 years and the MAD was 16.5 years.
 High school soccer team practice is usually watched by family members of the players. One evening, twenty people watched the team practice. The mean age was 38.5 years and the MAD was 12.7 years.

 Another evening, twenty people watched the soccer team practice. The mean age was similar to that from the first evening, but the MAD was greater (about 20 years).
Make a dot plot that could illustrate the distribution of ages in this story.
