Slider finds Cyroxide receipts for the month of July from the previous year, and the CyberSquad writes down on a calendar how many Cyroxide cans were sold on each day. Excluding an outlier, a holiday, they find a pattern for each week: an average of 30 cans are sold on weekdays, and an average of 60 cans are sold on weekends. They use the pattern they've identified to accurately place an order for the next six days of business.
