tires to radial tires to improve fuel economy. Each of 10 taxis was equipped with one of the
two tire types and driven on a test course. Without changing drivers, tires were then
switched to the other tire type and the test course was repeated. The fuel economy (in mpg)
for the 10 cars is as follows:
