Lengths of bus routes for any particular transit system will typically vary from one route to another. The article “Planning of City Bus Routes” (*J. of the Institution of Engineers*, 1995:211-215) gives the following information on lengths (km) for one particular system:

Length |
6−<8 | 8−<10 | 10−<12 | 12−<14 | 14−<16 |

Frequency |
6 | 23 | 30 | 35 | 32 |

Length |
16−<18 | 18−<20 | 20−<22 | 22−<24 | 24−<26 |

Frequency |
48 | 42 | 40 | 28 | 27 |

Length |
26−<28 | 28−<30 | 30−<35 | 35−<40 | 40−<45 |

Frequency |
26 | 14 | 27 | 11 | 2 |

**a.**Draw a histogram corresponding to these frequencies.**b.**What proportion of these route lengths are less than 20? What proportion of these routes have lengths of at least 30?**c.**Roughly what is the value of the 90^{th}percentile of the route length distribution?**d.**Roughly what is the median route length?
