(20 points) Thirty students in an experimental psychology class use various techniques to' train a rat to move through a maze. At the end of the course, each student’s rat is timed as it negotiates the maze. The results (in minutes) are depicted in the following stem-and- leaf display obtained from Minitab. For example, according to the display, the longest running time is 9.7 minutes.

According to the record, at most 4 fatalities were observed in a month in the past t years. Table 2 below gives the percentage of all these recorded months that have certain number of fatalities. For instance, the following table suggests that 30% of the time there was no fatality in a month, and 36% of the time there were one fatality in a month.
