R. C. Droid has developed a new computer. He calls it the Droid computer. Mr. Droid has virtually every aspect of his new company well underway except for his sales force. He has not yet hired any salespeople to sell the Droid computer. Mr. Droid believes that any person with a high degree of intelligence (not necessarily high grades) can be trained to sell his computer. Thus, Mr. Droid administered an I.Q. test to three groups of applicants: accounting majors, English literature majors, and electrical engineering majors. The following data are the results of the test:
