Problem of the Week: Puddle Experiment

Jul 26, 2020

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Did you figure it out? Let's look at the solution!

 

To find the average, we add up all the numbers of larvae and then divide by the number of samples.

Natalie collected a total of 12 + 22 + 0 + 13 + 8 + 13 = 68 mosquito larvae in her six samples.

So, the average number of mosquito larvae in a sample is 68 ÷ 6 = 11⅓.

 

Look forward to next week's problem!
