Method of analysis used by the firm, Basic Statistics

1. (i) Complaints were made about the level of pollutants in the discharge from a certain factory.  The factory refuted the complaints by showing the results of their own analysis of the discharges.  However, the Environmental Health Agency claimed the method of analysis used by the firm was faulty.  A comparison was made over nine days using two methods of analysis in parallel to check the pollution levels.  The results (in ppm.) are shown below:
