# Stemplots and Frequency Polygon

I need help with the following three problems and understanding how to do them. Here is the info used for the first two problems:

DATE ACTUAL HIGH
9/1 80
9/2 77
9/3 81
9/4 85
9/5 73
9/6 73
9/7 80
9/8 72
9/9 83
9/10 81
9/11 75
9/12 78
9/13 80
9/14 71
9/15 73
9/16 78
9/17 75
9/18 63
9/19 63
9/20 70
9/21 77
9/22 82
9/23 81
9/24 76
9/25 77
9/26 76
9/27 74
9/28 66
9/29 66
9/30 62
10/1 71
10/2 68
10/3 66
10/4 71
10/5 58

1. Use the 35 actual high temperatures to construct a stemplot. What does the stemplot suggest about the distribution of the temperatures?

2. Use the 35 actual high temperatures to construct a frequency polygon. For the horizontal axis, use the midpoint values obtained from these class intervals: 50-59, 60-69, 70-79, 80-89.

USE THE INFO LISTED BELOW FOR SOLVING #3.

3. Use the heights to construct a stemplot. What does the stemplot suggest about the distribution of the heights?

This info was collected from the measurements from eruptions of the Old Faithful Geyser. If I have not included enough info please message me and I will add the rest. Thanks.
