Solution: Winnie the Pooh set out to help Rabbit count his carrots. However, Pooh has trouble counting and always leaves out the numbers 8, 9, and 10. The count that Pooh got for the various piles was 46, 39, 6, 18, and 11. The count that Rabbit (whose counting is always perfect) got for the same piles was 43, 36, 6, 15, and 8, respectively. Rabbit was very angry at Pooh. What can be said about Pooh’s results?   a) They are accurate but not precise b) They are precise but not accurate c) They are accurate and precise d) They are neither accurate nor precise e) Not enough information is given to make a decision about accuracy and precision.
