Example Question #1 : Interpreting Categorical & Quantitative Data

Represent data with plots on the real number line (dot plots, histograms, and box plots).

A gym class ran a quarter-mile exercise and the coach recorded the following student times in minutes:

Which of the following histograms most accurately represents the frequency of the student's run times?

Possible Answers:

Runchart1

Runchart5

Runchart3

Runchart2

Correct answer:

Runchart1

Explanation:

First, we need to organize the data in order from least to greatest. We are given the following data set:

When we order the run times from least to greatest we can write the following set:

Second, we need to create a frequency table using the given information. The constructed frequency table should look like the following figure:
