ok, so as you can see there is a greater amount of numbers along the 350 range than the 300 range, so since there are more on the higher numbers, it would be skewed to the right. Can you see that?
Yes perfect! Thank you so much! @jeweaver145
I have just one more and I let you off the hook at least for a second. Is that okay? @jeweaver145
skew refers to how the mean is affected, not the greater amount of data.
outliers pull the mean away from center, it skews the mean towards the tail.
i think youll find if you calculate the mean, it will lean heavier towards the side of greater data which is what we are seeing in this situation. I could be wrong but that is just my understanding
So is it skewing left or right?
its still right skewed
and yeah just open another question for me!
if we tilt this on its side ... you see that the 30s are smaller than the 35s the 30s are pulling the mean away from the greater portion of the data
the mean is skewed to the left as a result ...
Ugh you guys lol
OH! I see.
But doesnt the fact that the question specifically asks for a bar graph not a normal distribution, affect the way this turns out? now you got me wondering haha
the stem and leaf can be viewed as a crude histogram .. the length of the leafing parts gives us a rough shape.
I also have another questions. How do you post screenshots? My next questions has a histogram and I don't know how to post it.
sane the screenshot in a picture file in paint, is what i do, then attach
you can use the snipping tool in windows and then save the screen capture, then just attach file
In paint? Alrighty. I usually do it in word but of course you can't save it as a picture so that doesnt work.
jeweaver, i think your bar graph is a little off ... not sure how you worked density versus the other thing
i honestly through the data points into my calculator and told it to make me a histogram of the data, and then based the data on density of occurrence, thats all, the information on the left isnt really significant
