11.15 Calculating the mean:

|Quarter 1 | Quarter 2 | Quarter 3 |
|January \$24,600 |April \$21,200 |July \$29,900 |
|February 25,900 |May 24,600 |August 30,500 |
|March 23,000 |June 26,800 |September 26,600 |

24,600+25,900+23,000+21,200+24,600+26,800+29,900+30,500+26,600=233,100/9=\$25,900

Q1: 24,600+25,900+23,000=73,500/3=\$24,500
Q2: 21,200+24,600+26,800=72,600/3=\$24,200
Q3: 29,900+30,500+26,600=87,000/3=\$29,000

This first and second quarter had similar sales averages of near \$24,000. A sharp increase to sales has been recorded in the third quarter with a sales average of \$29,000, posting a sales high of 30,500 in the month of August.
