1.c)The average is 0.72
1.d) This method is considered indirect, because i’m not direct measuring the thickness of the M&M. I used a formula and gathered information to help find the average thicknsess

2.b) This is direct, because the measurements were from the M&M and the vernier caliper
3) The direct method is the best way to find the thickness of the M&M’s. The direct method doesn’t rely on a formula with the indirect method. There may have been errors as there were spaces in between the M&M. When they were in the circle and in the graduated cylinder.
