1. Organize the test data into a frequency table. Use classes of width 10, starting with 40. Include columns for both the frequency and the relative frequency.

2. Use the frequency distribution in part (1) to create a frequency histogram of the data. Remember to give your chart a title and to label your axes.

3. Make and ordered stem and leaf display of the data in part (1)
