Each day for 1 month, a game warden counted the number of deer at four different locations in a park. The game warden calculated the mean and the MAD of the observations at each location and recorded them in a table. Which two locations have the greatest overlap in their distributions? Choose exactly two answers that are correct. Location Mean MAD Emerald Lake 20.7 3.0 Kennedy Falls 25.6 2.8 Pine Meadows 14.8 2.9 Spruce Grove 19.2 3.1

    You add and subtract the MAD from the mean to find the range. Mean 20.7 and MAD 3.0 means range is from 17.7 to 23.7 for Emerald Lake. I'd do the same thing to the other options and then you can compare the ranges.

    Actually, you don't need to do that. The MAD's are all pretty close to 3, so just pick the 2 with the closest means.

    That would be 25.6 and 14.8, a difference of 10.8. Can you find any other pair with a smaller difference. You were on the right track with A

    So, one of the answers was A. Okay. So maybe A and D.

    That's the smallest difference, so would have the most overlap.
