Some customers visit the store only 1 time during the one month, but others shop as many as 15 times. c.

An interval of 10 is more convenient to work with. The distribution using 10 is: f 15 up to 25 1 25 up to 35 2 35 up to 45 5 45 up to 55 10 55 up to 65 15 65 up to 75 4 75 up to 85 3 Total 40 b. Data tends to cluster in classes 45 up to 55 and 55 up to 65. c. Based on the distribution, the least amount spent is 15 (actually 18 from the raw data). The most spent was less than 85. The largest concentration of amount is between 45 up to 65. d. Amt.
