hello to all, this is my first post yay! anyways i have a homework assignment where i have to find the mean, median, mode, variance, standard deviation, etc. i did that part already but then i have to create a stem and leaf plot graph. how exactly do i create a stem plot with my homework assignment.
i know what a stem plot is but how would i create one with this example? like i could make the stem the first number of each double digit (salary) and then make the leaf parts with the second number in the double digit BUT how would i make it to where the reader knows how many people make that certain amount. in this example ...
employees  stem  leaf _____________________ 3  2  2 7 9 in the above example..this is just a portion of how i created my stem/leaf graph using the chart below. there are 3 employees in the 20,000 category and 1 employee gets 22000, another gets 27000 and another gets 29000. Would this be the correct way to create a stem and leaf plot? i hope what i wrote is understandable.
Annual salaries in dollars (in thousands) of 21 employees in a company
$22 $32 $47 $53 $36 $44 $65 $53 $53 $32 $29 $65 $58 $47 $27 $36 $44 $53 $36 $47 $68
