1. Retaileis who sell tiavel packages want to know the aveiage age at which people get
maiiieu. Tiavel piofessionals believe that couples who aie oluei when they maiiy
spenu significantly moie on honeymoons than those who maiiy youngei, theiefoie
they will cieate moie elaboiate packages if the aveiage age of maiiiage is getting
highei. The following ages of biiual couples weie
