In West Texas, water is extremely important. The following data represent pH levels in ground water for a random sample of 102 West Texas wells. A pH
less than 7 is acidic and a pH above 7 is alkaline. Scanning the data, you can see that water in this region tends to be hard (alkaline). Too high a pH means
the water is unusable or needs expensive treatment to make it usable.+ These data are also available for download at the Companion Sites for this text. For
convenience, the data are presented in increasing order. x: pH of Ground Water in 102 West Texas Wells
