The graph on the left above represents the number of family members per family in Town X, while the graph on the right above represents the number of family members per family in Town Y. The median family size for Town X is equal to the median family size for Town Y. The horizontal and vertical dimensions of the boxes above are identical and correspond to the same measurements. Which of the following statements must be true?

Indicate all such statements.

A. The range of family sizes measured as the number of family members is larger in Town X than in Town Y.

B. Families in Town Y are more likely to have sizes within 1 family member of the mean than are families in Town X.

C. The data for Town X has a larger standard deviation than the data for Town Y.

Note that the spread of graph Y appears smaller than the spread of graph X. This tells us that the standard deviation of X is greater than the standard deviation of Y.

A: We don't know anything about the range. It appears that they are roughly equal, based on the width of the two graphs.

B: Based on the graphs, it does indeed appears that more of population Y is closer to the mean of the graph. This fits with what we said about the spread before. If the spread is smaller, more of the population would be closer to the mean.

C: As stated in the beginning, graph X has greater spread, so it has a greater standard deviation than Y.
