Use the heights to construct a stemplot. What does the stemplot suggest about the distribution 1 10
of the heights? 1 19
139 A stemplot (or stemandleafplot) represents data by separating each value into two parts, the stem (all digits of the number except the last and rightmost digit) and the leaf (the last, rightmost digit of the number). Start by ﬁnding the largest and smallest value. This will allow us to know how many rows to create. Smallest Largest 90 150 The rows of digits in a stemplot are similar in nature to the bars in a histogram. One of the 9
guidelines for constructing histograms is that the number of classes should be between 5 and 10
20, and the same guideline applies to stemplots for the same reasons. Therefore, we will use 7" rows. Each row represents the tens digit. 1; 14
15 Now ﬁll in the stemplot. Start with the first number, 124. The stem is 12 and the leafis 4.
Therefore, find the row that corresponds to 12 and insert a 4 as the first number. Use the same procedure to fill in the remaining numbers. Note that the leaves are arranged
in increasing order, not the order in which they occur in the original list. If the plot starts small then increases to some maximum, then decreases and it is also symmetric, then we refer to the 90

town aged 2564 who have internet access in their homes. Construct a frequency polygon using the data.
First, find each class midpoint by adding the lower class limit and the upper class limit and dividing the result by 2. The midpoint of the first class is found using the aforementioned formula as seen below. 34+25
—= 29.5 The rest of the class midpoints, shown below, can be found by the same method. Midpoint To draw a frequency polygon, plot a point above each class midpoint on a horizontal axis at a height equal to the
frequency ofthe class. After the points are plotted, straight lines are drawn between consecutive points. The line segments are extended to the
left and right so that the graph begins and ends on the horizontal axis. Here is the frequency polygon that matches the data. 1000—

the distribution of these blood groups. AAABOOBOOOAAAOAOOOAOAB A pie chart is a graph that depicts qualitative data as slices ofa circle, in which the size ofeach slice is proportional to
the frequency count for the category. Begin by finding the frequency of each blood type. The completed frequency table is shown below. Blood Group Frequency A 7
B 1
AB 2
O 10 Next calculate the percentage frequency of each blood group. To do so, first calculate the sum of all frequencies.
7 +1 +2 +10 = 20 The percentage frequency is equal to the category frequency divided by the sum of all frequencies, multiplied by 100%.
The table of percentage frequencies is shown below. Blood Group Percentage Frequency
A W20 X 100% = 35%
B H20X100%=5%
AB 290 X 100% = 10%
0 10120 X 100% = 50% The sizes of the slices of the circle representing the pie chart are given by the percentages calculated in the previous step.
That is, 35% of the pie chart shows blood group A, 5% of the pie chart shows blood group B, 10% of the pie chart
shows blood group AB, and 50% of the pie chart shows blood group 0. Use these results to construct the pie chart depicting the distribution of these blood groups. The pie chart is shown
