Is the distribution of candies in each bag representative of the population?








Are there more oranges in regular versus peanuts? Also, haven't I seen this one before?










If we open up 100 bags each, will the proportions even out? (And if we do open them, can I eat them?)







Is the probability of getting a blue m&m the same for peanut and original packages?














Is this the distribution of these bags a good estimate for the distribution of M&M production?




Can we really make any conclusions about the colour counts based on only one sample of each kind?






What would qualify as an unusual amount of _____ color of regular m & m's? Peanut?
