Snowfall Amounts

APSTAT-PFXXYE

A meteorologist in a small town has been keeping track of annual snowfall amounts for the last $65$ years. The annual snowfall has an average of $54$ inches with a standard deviation of $9.8$ inches. This year a local citizen claimed the town received $124.5$ inches of snow.

Based on this information, one can conclude

A

A mistake was likely made in recording snowfall amounts.

B

This year was surprisingly snowy but is not a huge abnormality.

C

The interquartile range must be well over $9.8$ inches.

D

Before the point $124.5$ was added, this distribution was right skewed.

E

The median will be greater than the mean for this distribution.
