Use the tally marks to find the total frequency for each class. Start with the first frequency. There are 2] rainfall amounts between 0.00 and 0.19. There are 16 days with no rain, 2 days with 0.02 inches of rain, 1 day with 0.11 inches of rain, and 2 days with 0.19 inches of rain. Daily.

The frequencies start low, then increase to some maximum frequency, then decrease to a low frequency. 2. The distribution should be approximately symmetric, with frequencies evenly distributed on both sides of the maximum frequency. The frequencies do not start low, then increase to some maximum frequency, then decrease to a low frequency. Therefore, the distribution does not appear to be normal. Page 2. ...

    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.
