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

    We do not do your work for you. Once you have attempted to answer your questions, we will be happy to give you feedback on your work. Although it might require more time and effort, you will learn more if you do your own work. Isn't that why you go to school?

  2. 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.
