Rebecca is studying the range of growth of tomato plants. She measured the following data in the fourth week of growing her plants.

tomato plant measured growth

1 1.5 cm

2 6.5 cm

3 7 cm

4 6.5 cm

5 3.25 cm

6 7.75 cm

7 5.5 cm

8 6 cm

Given this data, what should Rebecca expect the average measured growth to be in the fourth week for 8 new plants of the same species at the same time the next year?
