Textbook Problem

Sketch a histogram and a polygon showing the distribution of scores presented in the following table:

X |
f |

7 |
1 |

6 | 1 |

5 | 3 |

4 | 6 |

3 | 4 |

2 | 1 |

To determine

**To Sketch:** The frequency distribution histogram and a frequency distribution polygon for the given data.

Explanation

**Given info:**

The frequency distribution table is,

X |
f |

5 | 4 |

4 | 6 |

3 | 3 |

2 | 1 |

1 | 1 |

**Calculation:**

**Software procedure:**

**Construct the frequency distribution histogram:**

Use the SPSS software to construct the frequency histogram for the frequency distribution with the help of following instructions:

- Enter all the scores in one column of the data editor, probably
**VAR0OOOI.** - Click
**Analyze**on the tool bar, select**Descriptive Statistics,**and click on**Frequencies**. - Highlight the column label for the set of scores (
**VAR00001**) in the left box and click the arrow to move it into the**Variable**box. - Click
**Charts**. - Select either
**Bar graphs**or**Histogram.** - Click
**Continue.** - Click
**OK**.

Output using the SPSS software is given below:
