Expert Answer

Step 1

(a)

Justification:

Population and variable:

The complete set of observations for a particular study that can be studied is called a ‘Population’. Each observation of population is defined as population unit and the population data have the variable values for the whole population whereas the part is considered to be the variable.

Thus, the states of the United States are the population and the variable is exports values of the States.

(b)

Software procedure:

Step by step procedure to draw the relative frequency histogram chart by using MINITAB software.

  • Choose Graph > Histogram.
  • Choose Simple, and then click OK.
  • In Graph variables, enter the corresponding column of values.
  • In scale on y-axis, make click on frequency.
  • Click on ok.

Output using MINITAB software is given below:

Step 2

Interpretation:

The pattern in the graph is the data is more in the value zero which is approximately frequency of about 22.

(c)

Software procedure:

Step-by-step procedure to draw dot plot using MINITAB software is as follows:

  • Select Graph > Dot plot.
  • Select the column of values in Graph variables.
  • Select OK.

Step 3

Observation:

The pattern in the graph is the data is more in the value of zero

(d)

Software procedure:

Step-by-step software procedure to draw stem and leaf plot using MINITAB software is as follows:

  • Select Graph > Stem and leaf.
  • Select the column of data in Graph variables.
  • ...
