    The area of study is Sampling Methods and the Central Limit Theorem

    Consider all of the coins (pennies, nickels, quarters, etc.) in your pocket or purse as a population.Make a frequency table beginning with the current year and counting backward torecord the ages (in years) of the coins. For example, if the current year is 2004, then a coinwith 2002 stamped on it is 2 years old.

    Now I have the following table showing coins with year stamped on it

    Type of coins year stamped year-old

    Two-dollar 1: 1996 9
    Two-dollar 2: 1996 9
    One-dollar 1: 1989 16
    One-dollar 2: 1989 16
    One-dollar 3: 1987 18
    One-dollar 4: 1993 ...
