Question Observations, unit of analysis, and variables

Sun Tyrant: 25, 28, 25, 28, 29, 24, 28, 24, 24, 28, 30, 24, 22, 27

Sun Acrid: 29, 31, 29, 26, 28, 22, 25, 29, 29, 27, 28, 23, 26, 29

Laminatekist: 25, 26, 26, 26, 26, 28, 27, 26, 25, 28, 24, 28, 27, 25

This data set shows the number of raisins in each of 14 boxes of three different brands of raisins. In this set of data, what is the unit of analysis, the observations, and the variables?

I think the answers could change depending on what you want to study. But, in general, since each value of your data corresponds with one box, the units of analysis are the boxes. The observations are each value, i.e., the number of raisins in each box, and the varibales are three, 1)number of raisins in boxes of tyrant, 2) ... of acrid, and 3)... of Laminatekist.
