  1. Which city has the highest mean temperature? The lowest? (New Orleans, Anchorage)

  2. What can you notice about the median and mean? (They are very close together for all four cities.)

  3. What can you notice about the ranges? (The range is ten or less for all four cities.)

  4. If Whateverville is located in the center of the country, which city's weather is the most feasible model? (St. Louis)

  5. What advice would you give Mayor Wallop? (Temperature can only change a few degrees between days, small ranges, no temperatures which throw off the mean.)
