A Pareto diagram is a variation of a histogram for categorical data resulting from a quality control study, Each category represents a different type of product non-conformity or production problem. The categories are ordered so that the one with the largest frequency appears on the far left, then the category with the second largest frequency, and so on. Suppose the following information on nonconformities in circuit packs is obtained: failed component. 126; incorrect component. 210; insufficient solder, 67; excess solder, 54; missing component, 131. Construct a Pareto diagram.
