A market research firm has three clients who have each requested that the firm
conduct a sample survey. Four available statisticians can be assigned to these
three projects; however, all four statisticians are busy , and can only handle one
clients. The following data shows the number of hours required for resch statistician
to complete each job; the differences in time are based on experience and ability
of the statistician.

Statistician A B c
1 150 210 270
2 170 230 220
3 180 230 225
4 160 240 230

If they "can only handle one
clients," how do you get data from all the statisticians on all three companies (A, B and c)?

I hope this helps a little. Thanks for asking.
