    Answer:

    Dylan’s conclusion is not valid, because Dylan did not account for the other items purchased, only bagels.

    In this case, Dylan didn’t measured equally all items, just bagels, which means that he didn’t established a comparative about each item purchase to calculate the popularity. To set a costumer favorite product, Dylan must drive a proper investigation, recollecting data from several days and different products, that why he will be able to say “bagels are the most popular product”, or “pies and cakes is the item most purchased on Tuesdays”. Actually, this is the correct way to collect all data to define a marketing plan, which will help the bakery profitability.
