DIRECTIONS FOR MAKING FREQUENCY DISTRIBUTION FOR CONTINUOUS DATA 1. Organize data in ascending order: 1.03 1.72 1.99 3.21 4.24 4.58 1.36 1.75 2.52 3.47 4.27 4.72 1.45 1.85 2.67 3.50 4.43 4.75 1.51 1.92 3.06 3.72 4.54 4.79 1.63 1.95 3.20 3.78 4.57 4.91 2. Determine the number of classes desired (5 to 20): 3. Find the minimum and maximum values: 4. Calculate the Class Width – (max – min)/# of classes and round up to a convenient number: 5. Pick the Lower Class Limit of the first class – a convenient number below the minimum: 6. Calculate the Lower Class Limits of the other classes – add the Class Width to the first Lower Class Limit to get the next Lower Class Limit and so on (Note – for the limits use the same number of decimal places as the data):

Unformatted text preview: 7. Find the Upper Class Limit of the first class – one decimal place less than the second class’s lower limit: 8. Calculate the other Upper Class Limits – add the Class Width to the first Upper Class Limit to get the next Upper Class Limit and so on (Note – for the limits use the same number of decimal places as the data): 9. Split the data into the defined classes and count the frequency in each class: MAKE THE FREQUENCY DISTRIBUTION BACK AND GRAPH IT. CLASS FREQUENCY 1.00 – 1.69 1.70 – 2.39 2.40 – 3.09 3.10 – 3.79 3.80 – 4.49 4.50 – 5.19 Total 30 Be sure this totals to the number of data points: 10.Use the frequency distribution to draw a histogram:...

### What students are saying

• 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.
