The stem-and-leaf plot shows the heights in centimeters of Teddy Bear sunflowers grown in two different types of soil.

Soil A
65,62,61,61
75,71,70
82,81
90
Soil B
59

83

a) Describe the overlap of the two sets of data.

b) Calculate the mean of each data set.
1438/20 = 71.9
The mean of each data set is 71.9.

c) Calculate the mean absolute deviation (MAD) of each data set.
12.9, 10.9, 10.9, 9.9, 8.9, 6.9, 2.9, 1.9, 1.9, 0.9, -0.1, -1.1, -3.1, -4.1, -5.1, -6.1, -9.1, -10.1, -11.1, -18.1 / 20; 136/20 = 6.8
The mean absolute deviation (MAD) for each data set is 6.8: Is this correct?
