Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\quad \begin{array}{ccccc} \hline \frac{\textrm{class limits}}{\textrm{lowerupper}} & \frac{\textrm{class boundary}}{\textrm{lowerupper}} & \frac{\textrm{class}}{\textrm{midpoint}} &\text{tally}&\text{frequency}&\frac{\text{cumulative}}{\text{frequency}}\\ \hline 1 & & \\ \hline & & 4&6 \\ \hline & 5 & 4\\ \hline & & \\ \hline & 1 & \\ \hline & 1& 2\\ \hline \end{array}\] this is not the actual table. I'm new to making tables with Latex. Those numbers are just place holders so that my table doesn't collapse...now to my questions...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I found the class width to be 6 \[\frac{430}{8}=5.375\] 34 21 37 31 10 24 39 10 17 18 32 17 3 10 6 5 6 6 13 22 25 3 5 2 9 3 0 4 29 26 5 5 24 15 3 8 16 9 10 3 12 10 10 10 11 12 13 1 9 43 13 14 32 24 15

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for the first column... so would I write 06 612 1224 how do I know where to start the class limits? I know that I should add six to the upper and lower limit to get to the next limits, but where do i start?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, one thing is you don't want the classes to overlap, so maybe 06, 713, 1420, etc.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It looks like discrete data, so you don't have to worry about continuity corrections.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but I have to add 6 to the lower limit and to the upper limit. If I do what you did that would be adding 7 to each 06 713 Would that mean it doesn't matter where I start? could I do... 05 611 1217 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yeah, I think since 0 is included in the data, 05, 611, .. would be better if you want to have 8 classes. It'll overshoot a little at the end, but will include all the data.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Why would it overshoot at the end?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.18 classes with a width of 6 each would go to 47 (481 because starting count at 0)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's fine though, otherwise if you only had a width of 5, it would only go to 39 and that is less than your maximum value.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0will do. Thanks for your help!
