8. FILE Detergent. A well-known conglomerate claims that its detergent "whitens and brightens better than all the rest." In order to compare the cleansing action of the top three brands of detergents, 24 swatches of white cloth were soiled with red wine and grass stains and then washed in front-loading machines with the respective detergents. The following whiteness readings were obtained: Detergent 2 1 3 84 78 87 79 74 80 87 81 91 85 86 77 86 78 94 89 89 79 89 69 77 83 79 78
