Suppose you were in charge of advertising for an automotive dealership when the gas prices increased to $4 per gallon. Most of your cars are fuel-efficient, but you have two models that have extremely poor fuel economy, that is, a low number of miles per gallon. How would you use a measure of central tendency in your advertising to present your product line in the best light? Why would you choose this measure of central tendency? What circumstances would make you choose an alternative measure? Specify the circumstances and the measure you would use.
