V ALLEY S WIM C LUB
The Valley Swim Club has 300 stockholders , each holding one share of stock in the club. A share of club stock allows the shareholder's family to use the club's heated outdoor pool during the summer, upon payment of annual membership dues of $175. The club has not issued any stock in years, and only a few of the existing shares come up for sale each year. The board of directors administers the sale of all stock.

Before the board of directors could make a decision on whether to sell more shares and, if so, how many, the board members felt they needed more information. Specifically, they would like a forecast of the average number of people (family members , guests, etc.) who might attend the pool each day during the summer, with the current number of shares.
The board of directors has the following daily attendance records for June through August from the previous summer; it thinks the figures would provide accurate estimates for the upcoming summer:
