Please show all your work. Some questions require you to use graphs, tree
diagrams, formulas, and so on that are difficult or impossible to reproduce
in word-processing programs, so you will have to print the entire
assignment and fill it out and mail it to your tutor. As an alternative to
mailing, you might be able to photograph or scan your assignment and
submit it through the appropriate drop box. If you do, make sure the

Construct a frequency distribution for these data using a lower limit for the
first class of 5 and a class width of 10. Indicate the class limits, boundaries,
midpoints, frequencies and cumulative frequencies.
Note: As this data set does not contain fractional values, do not use the
“less than” method described on page 43 of the textbook for writing the
classes.
