Dotplot: Sled Dog Racing Make a dotplot for the data in Problem 15 regarding the finish time (number of hours) for the Iditarod Sled Dog Race. Compare the dotplot to the histogram of Problem 15.

To determine

To graph: The dotplot for Iditarod finish time for 57 dogsled teams and explain the comparison of dot plot and histogram.

Explanation

Graph: To construct the dotplot by using the MINITAB, the steps are as follows:

Step 1: Enter the data in C1.

Step 2: Go to Graph > Dotplot > Simple.

Step 3: Enter C1 in Graph variable.

Step 4: Click on OK.

The obtained dotplot is

To construct the histogram by using the MINITAB, the steps are as follows:

Step 1: Enter the class boundaries in C2 and frequency in C3.

Step 2: Go to Graph > Histogram > Simple.

Step 3: Enter C2 in Graph variable then go to Data options > Frequency > C3...
