Probability Frequency Calculations

The number of cars arriving at Joe Kelly's oil change and tune-up place during the last 200 hours of operation is observed to be the following:

Number of cars arriving Frequency
3 or less 0
4 10
5 30
6 70
7 50
8 40
9 or more 0
Based on the above frequencies, two digit random numbers are used and the following random number ranges have been developed.

Number of cars arriving Random Number ranges
4 00-04
5 05-19
6 20-54
7 55-79

Using the following sequence of random numbers, simulate 6 hours of car arrivals at Joe Kelly's oil change and tune-up facility. Random numbers: 92, 44, 15,77,21,38.
