The data represents the daily rainfall (in inches) for one month. Construct a frequency distribution beginning with a lower class limit of 0.00 and use a class width of 0.20. Does the frequency distribution appear to be roughly a normal distribution?

0.39 0 0 0.29 0 0.54
0 0.17 0 0 1.25 0
0.16 0 0.02 0 0.21 0
0.13 0.46 0 0.01 0 0.22
0 0.21 0 0 0.23 0

0.20-0.39 6 1.00-1.19 0
0.40-0.59 2 1.20-1.39 1
0.60-0.79 0
