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.


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

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