Did you ever purchase a bag of M&M’s candies and wonder about the distribution of colors? You can go to the website and click the United States on the map, then click About M&M’s, then Products and Peanut, and find the percentage breakdown according to the manufacturer, as well as a brief history of the product. Did you know in the beginning they were all brown? For peanut M&M’s, 12% are brown, 15% yellow, 12% red, 23% blue, 23% orange, and 15% green. A 6-oz. bag purchased at the Book Store at Coastal Carolina University had 14 brown, 13 yellow, 14 red, 12 blue, 7 orange, and 12 green. Is it reasonable to conclude that the actual distribution agrees with the expected distribution? Use the .05 significance level. Conduct your own trial. Be sure to share with yourinstructor.
