23 Example: You are interested in studying how much time students spend using the Web each day. You study 30 students, and their times spent on the Web (in minutes) for a particular day are listed below. 7 20 24 25 25 28 28 30 32 35 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 48 50 51 72 75 77 78 79 83 87 88 135 151 a) Make a stemplot of times spent of the Web.
