Question

The Wind Mountain excavation site in New Mexico is an important archaeological location of the ancient Native American Anasazi culture. The following data represent depths (in cm) below surface grade at which significant artifacts were discovered at this site (Reference: A.I. Woosley and A.J. McIntyre, Mimbres Mogollon Archaeology, University of New Mexico Press).

85 45 75 60 90 90 115 30 55 58

10 68 99 145 45 75 45 95 85 65
65 52 82              

For this problem, use seven classes.

(a) Find the class width.


(b) Make a frequency table showing class limits, class boundaries, midpoints, frequencies, relative frequencies, and cumulative frequencies. (Give relative frequencies to 4 decimal places.)
