Problem Set-up: Sampling Methods and the Central Limit Theorem

I need help setting this up:

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

Consider the digits in the phone numbers on a randomly selected page of your local phone book a population. Make a frequency table of the final digit of 30 randomly selected phone numbers. For example, if a phone number is 555-9704, record a 4.

Draw a histogram or other graph of this population distribution. Using the uniform distribution, compute the population mean and the population standard deviation.

See the attachment please.

I chose 30 phone numbers randomly and got the following

852-4534 4
461-8122 2
454-7100 0
209-2021 1

454-5888 8
434-4114 4
422-7368 8
466-0149 9

454-2571 1
468-2319 9
865-1334 4
455-5469 9

876-2227 7
452-6800 ...
