b) identify pie chart ( has same percentages as relative freq) c) bar chart ( not connected height matched relative freq.)

4. Questionaire with score results: 37 | 15 | 44 | 24 | 16 | 22 | 46 | 53 | 12 | 52 | 31 | 35 | 43 | 18 | 53 | 38 | 30 | 44 | 45 | 46 | 21 | 17 | 44 | 37 | 35 |

a) determine frequency distribution: Anxiety | Frequency | 12-18 | 5 | 19-25 | 3 | 26-32 | 2 | 33-39 | 5 | 40-46 | 7 | 47-53 | 3 |

Grouping is given by one, group the others like above. Then CAREFULLY tally them for the right column

b) obtain relative frequency: Anxiety | Relative Frequency | 12-18 | .2 | 19-25 | .12 | 26-32 | .08 | 33-39 | .2 | 40-46 | .28 | 47-53 | .12 |

RF = FN / (F1+ F2 +F3…)

c) frequency histogram (connected, highest point number for frequency)
d) rel freq. histogram (connected, highest point number for rel. frequency)

5. average height:

30.1 30.1 29.4 28.4 28 3 4 29 1 2 5 30 1 1
B) stem + leaf (two lines per stem)

27 2
