complete the histogram below to represent families of various sizes. Remember that data falling on a tick mark () goes in the bin to the right of that mark. What range do most families fall between? Do you see any families that are much larger or much smaller than other families?

A histogram has horizontal axis labeled, Number of family members, and scaled in threes, from 0 to 15, and vertical axis labeled, Frequency, and scaled in ones, from 0 to 4.

Refer to problem 2-13 that you completed in class for help with making a histogram. Try creating your own graph before checking the answer.

Begin by counting how many students have families with less than people, with to people, with to people, and with to people (since none have more than ).

Families with less than people:
Families with to people:
Families with to people:
Families with to people:

In what range do the most number of family members fall? Remember to answer all of the questions.

A histogram labeled, Number of family members, on the horizontal axis, scaled in threes, from 0 to 15.  Frequency is labeled, on the vertical axis, scaled in ones, from 0 to 4. Starting at the left, each segment has the following bar heights: 1, 4, 4, 1, 0.
