Question
Prepare a report (see below) using the numerical methods of descriptive statistics presented in this module to learn how the variables contribute to the success of a motion picture. Be sure to include the following three (3) items in your report.

1. Descriptive statistics (5-number summary, mean, mode, range and standard deviation) for each of the four variables along with an explanation of what the descriptive statistics tell us about the motion picture industry.

2. What motion pictures, if any, should be considered high-performance outliers in each of the four variables? If there are any outliers in any category, please list them and state for which category they are an outlier. Describe which method you used to determine if there were or not.

3. Descriptive statistics (correlation coefficient) showing the relationship between total gross sales and each of the other three variables. Please provide an explanation of the relationships.
