    You are the manager, so you must make the decisions from what you know about the descriptive statistics and graphics.

    I would include several key pieces of information such as sales data, cost of goods, cost of labor, sales projections vs. actual sales,total expenses vs. budget and bottom line profit. I think the mean would best represent the performance of my division. I would use histgrams and bar charts. They are the easiest to produce and the easiest to read.
