Following are the speeds of 40 cars clocked by radar on a particular road in a 35-mph zone on a particular afternoon: 30, 36, 42, 36, 30, 52, 36, 34, 36, 33, 30, 32, 35, 32, 37, 34, 36, 31, 35, 20 24, 46, 23, 31, 32, 45, 34, 37, 28, 40, 34, 38, 40, 52, 31, 33, 15, 27, 36, 40 Make a frequency table and a histogram, then describe the general shape of the distribution. I understand what a frequency table and histogram are, but can I make them right on the worksheet I am working on (Microsoft word) or do I need to do it on excel? Confused on how to describe the general shape of the distributio

    there are different ways to produce a table, and I think what's particularly useful for this one is the tree-leaf method, as for the graph, it's basic

    I've never used excel on this one, but I am sure it is the same you catalogue it in an x-y plane for every data point you have and the same value stacks up

    try inputting your values in an excel program and then use the auto-sort tool into increasing order

    the good thing about the leaf-method I was talking about because it shows you right away the shape of the histogram

    ok. Thank you! I will try excel! In a normal statistics class, on campus would you have to draw out the frequency table and histogram yourself?

    I've taken statistics where it did not require us to use programs, but more like analysis methods

    This is just my first week of this class. I have a scanner so I thought if I could just draw them out it would be easier..

    The question said a histogram freq in single units on the y-axis and even intervals on the x-axis the total of all your numbers (the different heights) should add up to 40
