Data Analysis 1. Many downhill skiers eagerly look forward to the winter months and fresh snowfalls. However, winter also entails cold days. How does the temperature affect skiers' desire to be on the slopes? To answer this question, a local ski resort recorded the temperature for 50 randomly selected days and the number of lift tickets sold. Both variables are stored in the attached homework_4_dataset.xls file (use sheet #1). Use a graphical technique to describe the data and interpret your results. 2. Three men were trying to make the football team as punters. The coach had each of them punt the ball 50 times and the distances were recorded in columns 1, 2, and 3 in the attached homework_4_dataset.xls file (use sheet #2).

Compute the mean and standard deviation for each punter.
