3 Stem-and-leaf Plot A simple way to summarize a data set. Each item in the sample is divided into two parts: a stem , consisting of the leftmost one or two digits, and the leaf , which consists of the next significant digit. It is a compact way to represent the data. It also gives us some indication of the shape of our data.

4 Example: Duration of dormant periods of the geyser Old Faithful in Minutes Stem-and-leaf plot: 4 259 5 0111133556678 6 067789 7 01233455556666699 8 000012223344456668 9 013 Let’s look at the first line of the stem-and-leaf plot. This represents measurements of 42, 45, and 49 minutes. A good feature of these plots is that they display all the sample values. One can reconstruct the data in its entirety from a stem-and-leaf plot. Example 5
5 Dotplot A dotplot is a graph that can be used to give a rough impression of the shape of a sample. It is useful when the sample size is not too large and when the sample contains some repeated values. Good method, along with the stem-and-leaf plot to informally examine a sample.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
