The ogive (cumulative frequency graph) can be constructed byfollowing the steps for a frequency polygon with two minor changes: Step 1. Make the following changes in the worksheet. Change the X values to the class limits from 99.5 to 134.5 by 5. Change the frequencies to cumulative frequencies. Step 2. Select Graph>Scatterplot>With Connect line.

The maximum numbers of sit-ups completed by the participants in an exercise class after 1 month in the program are recorded: 24 31 54 62 36 28 37 55 18 27 58 32 37 41 55 39 56 42 29 35 a) b) c) d) e) f) Construct a stem and leaf plot. Calculate the sample mean and sample standard deviation. Find the five-number summary. Construct a boxplot Identify any outlier(s) obtained from the boxplot. Use the Interquartile range to determine whether 62 is an outlier or not. Explain.

***Enter the given data and name the column Sit Ups. a) Construct a stem and leaf plot. Step 1. Click on Graph>Stem-and-Leaf.

Step 2. Click on the inside of the Graph variables and double click C1 Sit Ups You have the option of checking Trim outliers if the exercise requires you to do so. Step 3. Click in the Increment text box, and enter 10 (the class width). Step 4. Click OK.
