Swish and Spit Worksheet

Partner Names:__________________________________________________

The researchers for the Swish and Spit Mouthwash Company, using a measuring tape, measured the distance between the corners of the closed mouths of 20 random people and record their results in millimeters on the table below. Mr. Swish believes the opening of the new single serve mouthwash containers should be equal to or slightly smaller than the lip length of most of the people the researchers studied. If the container is larger than the lip measurement, then the mouthwash will spill out of the sides and the container will not be effective.
