2-49.

Given the data in the table at right, copy and complete the histogram below to represent families of various sizes. Remember that data falling on a tick mark (3, 6, 9, …) 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? Homework Help ✎

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 3 people, with 3 to 5 people, with 6 to 8 people, and with 9 to 11 people (since none have more than 12).

Families with less than 3 people: 1
Families with 3 to 5 people: 4
Families with 6 to 8 people: 4
Families with 9 to 11 people: 1

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