Question 1, Part A Mean Min Max IQR US Exports 33284499910.73 3223226812.00 291757629857.00 23654534991.00 Relative GDP 8.79 0.71 76.69 7.97 Distance 8813.47 548.39 16180.32 5173.99
Question 1, Part A US Exports: The average US exports is 33 billion, while the max is 291 billion. This suggests that the US trades heavily with just a few countries—Canada, Mexico, and China—and sparingly with many other countries. Relative GDP: With only 10 countries having a relative GDP of 10% of US GDP and only China having a relative GDP greater than 50%, the US is by far the largest economic country. This large differentiation suggests the US is not largely affected by trade with most individual countries and that the US potentially has large influence in international markets. Distance: In the world today, distance is irrelevant. Shipping has progressed enough so any country can easily trade with any other, regardless of global location.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
