The values calculation in both Pennsylvania and Michigan companies allow the

comparison average in billions for each states revenue. It also shows that Pennsylvania is more lucrative in profit then Michigan.

If the largest data was removed from the Michigan data, the mean and the

standard deviations both were higher. The Pennsylvania calculations dropped as well. After removing the largest amount of revenue the states are swapped and Michigan is considered to have a higher mean in billions.

Mean=2973.63

Standard Deviation= 54.53

Mean=1232.63

Again the results are displaying that Pennsylvania is having a higher rate of employment for their state.
