8. A random sample of 15 college students were asked "How many hours per week typically do you work outside the home?" Their responses are shown on the right.Determine the shape of the distribution of hours worked by drawing a frequency histogram and computing the mean and median. Which measure of central tendency better describes hoursworked?133131291717201918232620629Choose the correct frequency histogram below.A.0102030024hoursFrequencyB.0102030024hoursFrequencyC.0102030024hoursFrequencyD.0102030024hoursFrequency Is the histogram for the data set skewed right, skewed left, or symmetric? Skewed leftSkewed rightRoughly symmetric and bell-shapedRoughly symmetric but not bell-shaped The mean number of hours worked by college students outside the home is approximately hours.17.533(Type an integer or decimal rounded to three decimal places as needed.) 18Which measure of central tendency better describes hours worked?

A.Histogram depicts the higher standarddeviation, since it is more bell shaped.bB.Histogram depicts the higher standarddeviation, because the bars are higher than the average bar in .abC.Histogram depicts the higher standarddeviation, because the distribution has more dispersion.bD.Histogram depicts the higher standarddeviation, because the distribution has more dispersion.a
