2.80Consider columns 1 and 3 of the energy-consumption data given in Exercise2.24.Compute the midpoint for each class presented in column 1.Pair eachmidpoint with its corresponding relative frequency found in column 3.Construct a horizontal axis, where the units are in terms of midpoints and avertical axis where the units are in terms of relative frequencies.Foreach midpoint on the horizontal axis, plot a point whose height is equal tothe relative frequency of the class.Then join the points with connectinglines.The result is a relative-frequency polygon.

46 Chapter 2, Descriptive Statistics 2.81 (a)Consider all three columns of the energy-consumption data given inExercise 2.24. (b)Pair each cutpoint in reworked column 1 with its correspondingcumulative relative frequency found in reworked column 3.Construct ahorizontal axis, where the units are in terms of the cutpoints and avertical axis where the units are in terms of cumulative relativefrequencies.For each cutpoint on the horizontal axis, plot a pointwhose height is equal to the cumulative relative frequency.Then jointhe points with connecting lines.The result, presented in Figure(b), is anogiveusing cumulative relative frequencies.(Note: Asimilar procedure could be followed using cumulative frequencies.)
