1.
The advantage of using summary statistics is that it gives a good estimate about
the average number of sales per week.
Also, the median gives a rough estimate of
the number of sales in the middle if there are extremes that would skew the data.
The range is useful in showing how far apart the data is from the lowest to the
highest value, which could be used to suggest whether it’s better to use the
median instead of the mean.
The disadvantage of summary statistics compared to
a histogram is that it is difficult to determine what range most of the numbers of
sales fall upon.
A histogram provides a visual way to compare data as opposed to
numerical values.
Histograms also provide information on whether data is
skewed more towards the left or right.
