2.   Moh's hardness scale ranges from 1 to 10 and describes different minerals in terms of their hardness. Gypsum is the softest mineral on the scale (hardness of 1) and diamond is the hardest mineral on the scale (hardness of 10). In a collection of 10 minerals, each with an integer hardness value different from any other mineral in the collection, what is the probability of randomly choosing a mineral from the collection that has a hardness greater than 5 ?

3.   Sierra made an analysis of the hornfels in the local gneiss found at Buckthorn Butte. She analyzed the gneiss on three different occasions and obtained the three following sets of data for the percent hornfels in the gneiss: Set A = {4, 5, 4, 4.5, 4.4, 4.4, 4.4, 4.4}, Set B = {3.2, 3.2, 4.4, 5.6, 4.1, 4.2, 4.1, 5.1}, Set C = {3.7, 5.7, 4.8, 5.4, 3.7, 3.9, 5.7, 5.7}.
