Consumers are frequently cautioned against eating too much food that is high in calories, fat, and sodium for numerous health and fitness reasons. Nutrition in Action published a list of popular low-fat brands of hot dogs commonly labeled “fat-free,”“reduced fat,” “low-fat,” “light,” and so on, together with their calories, fat content, and sodium. All measured quantities are for one dog:
a. Find the mean, median, mode, and midrange of the calories, fat, and sodium content of all the frankfurters listed. Use a table to summarize your results.
b. Construct a dotplot of the fat content. Locate the mean, median, mode, and midrange on the plot.
c. In the summer of 2009, the winner of Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest consumed 68 hot dogs in 10 minutes. If he had been served the median hot dog, how many calories, grams of fat, and milligrams of sodium would he have consumed in that single sitting? If the recommended daily allowance for sodium intake is 2400 mg, would he likely have exceeded it? Explain.
