Description: Sal shows how to solve the problem: Given a dot plot with different measurements of trail mix in bags, find the amount of trail mix each bag would contain if the total amount in all the bags were redistributed equally. The plot below shows the amount of trail mix in each of four camper's bags. So what we really wanna do is think about let's take all of the trail mix in the four bags together, and then divide it by four so that they all have an even amount. So let's just think about how much trail mix we have in these four bags together.
