COMPARING WAYS TO REPRESENT DATA.

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

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.

$\begin{array}{ccccccccccccccccccc} \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \bigcirc \\ \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \bigcirc & \bigcirc & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \bigcirc \\ \bigcirc & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \bigcirc & \bigcirc & \bigcirc & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \bigcirc & \bigcirc & \bigcirc & \bigcirc & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \bigcirc & \bigcirc & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \bigcirc & \newcommand{blank}{\ } & \bigcirc & \bigcirc \\ \hline 25 & 26 & 27 & 28 & 29 & 30 & 31 & 32 & 33 & 34 & 35 & 36 & 37 & 38 & 39 & 40 & 41 & 42 & 43 \end{array}$

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

$\begin{array} {c | c c c c c c c c c c c c} 2 & 5 & 8 & 9\\ 3 & 0 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 4 & 5 & 5 & 7 & 8\\ 4 & 0 & 2 & 3 & 3 & 3 & 4 & 4 & 5 & 5 & 6 & 7 & 8\\ 5 & 0 & 1 & 7\\ 6 & 0 & 3 \end{array}$
