Justin tabulated the number of Peaches sold by vendors in 3 hours on a Sunday. Find the difference between the number of vendors who sold at least 16 Peaches in 3 hours on Sunday and the number of vendors who sold at most 15 Peaches in the same time.

NUMBER OF PEACHES | FREQUENCY(No Of Vendors) |

1 - 5 | 1 |

6 - 10 | 2 |

11 - 15 | 10 |

16 - 20 | 16 |

21 - 25 | 1 |

a. | 12 | ||

b. | 4 | ||

c. | 5 | ||

d. | 7 |

Number of vendors that sold at least 16 peaches = number of vendors who sold 16-20 peaches + number of vendors who sold 21-25 peaches

= 10 + 2 + 1 = 13

Number of vendors who sold less than 15 peaches = number of vendors who sold 1-5 peachces + vendors who sold 6-10 peaches + vendors who sold 11-15 peaches

The difference between vendors who sold at least 16 and those who sold at most 15 = 17 - 13 = 4.
