Chapter 4 statistics Chapter Summary I. A dot plot shows the range of values on the horizontal axis and the number of observations for  each value on the vertical axis. A. Dot plots report the details of each observation. B. They are useful for comparing two or more data sets. II. A stem-and-leaf display is an alternative to a histogram. A. The leading digit is the stem and the trailing digit the leaf. B. The advantages of a stem-and-leaf display over a histogram include: 1. The identity of each observation is not lost. 2. The digits themselves give a picture of the distribution. 3. The cumulative frequencies are also shown. III. Measures of location also describe the shape of a set of observations. A. Quartiles divide a set of observations into four equal parts. 1. Twenty-five percent of the observations are less than the first quartile, 50 percent are  less than the second quartile, and 75 percent are less than the third quartile.

"Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."

    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.
