COMPARING WAYS TO REPRESENT DATA.

Use the golf-tournament data below to complete parts (a) through (e). Homework Help ✎

Ages of golfers participating in a golf tournament:

44, 48, 40, 25, 28, 37, 29, 34, 45, 51, 43, 35, 38, 57, 50,
35, 47, 30, 63, 43, 44, 60, 46, 43, 33, 45, 42, 34, 32

  1. Use the data to create a dot plot.

    Your dot plot may look like the one below.

  2. Why is a dot plot not the best choice for graphing this data?

    Explain in your own words.

  3. Create a stem-and-leaf plot for the data.

  4. Use the stem-and-leaf plot to create a histogram for the data.

  5. What range of ages do most golfers fall between? Do you see any ages that are much larger or smaller than other ages?

  • Look at the plots and histogram you created to help you answer these questions.
