Unformatted text preview: EC 41 UCLA - — Sample Problems #1; RE Ch 1 material These problems will NOT be collected or graded, but they will be useful for studying for exams. I) Let x be the income (in thousands ofS) for households in a US. neighborhood Suppose 10 households are sampled and the values forx are: 15, 35, 45, IO, 40, 35, IO, 15, I5, 50 a) Write :1 stem-plot ofthis data: b) Write two histograms below with either counts or percent on the vertical axis. i) To the left make a histogram such that O-lO includes 10 but not 0, 10-20 includes 20 but not 10... (Excel will construct such a histogrz-un if“hin entries“ are 10,20,30,40,50) ii) To the right make a histogram such that 0-IO includes 0 but not I0, l0-20 includes 10 but not 20...
