A box and whisker graph showing beef hotdogs with high and low of 110-190 and meat hotdogs with high and low of 105-195 and poultry hot dogs with 85-170. This suggests that poultry dogs have fewer calories per dog than either beef or meat hotdogs. Yet, one dietician claims that some hotdogs made of poultry have 150% of the calories of some hotdogs made of beef. Can this claim be correct.

I say yes because 150% times the lowest in the poultry gives a result that falls in the beef range. Is this correct?
