On page 263, we presented a frequency distribution for data on chest  circumference, in inches, for 5732 Scottish militiamen. As mentioned there,  Adolphe Quetelet used a procedure for fitting a normal curve to the data based on  the binomial distribution. Here you are to accomplish that task by using techniques that you studied in this chapter.  a. Construct a relative-frequency histogram for the chest circumference data, using classes based on a single value.  b. The population mean and population standard deviation of the chest  circumferences are 39.85 and 2.07, respectively. Identify the normal curve that  should be used for the chest circumferences.

    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.
