GMAT-IF1E42

In a marketing research study, 100 volunteers were asked to complete a taste test on several brands of chocolate chip cookies. Data on the 12 brands of cookies that were tested are given in the table below, from available package sizes.

Price is measured in cents per cookie Weight, Fat and Sugar in grams per cookie, and Calories in calories per cookie.

ChipCount refers to the average total number of chocolate chips present on the exterior and interior of the cookie.

The Taste rating is measured on a scale from 1 to 10, with ratings of 10 indicating the best taste.
