The following data set lists the number of letters in the
first 50 words in a newspaper article:
2, 5, 5, 9, 4, 4, 6, 7, 7, 6, 6, 6, 2, 5, 10, 7, 7, 6, 3, 5, 3, 2,
3, 3, 5, 4, 3, 4, 6, 5, 5, 6, 3, 2, 6, 4, 3, 5, 5, 7, 2, 3, 5, 5,
5, 7, 3, 2, 10, 3
a. Make a frequency table detailing the occurrence of
each word length.
b. Find the relative frequency of each word length
observed.
c. Make a dot plot of the data from this experiment.
d. Did you observe any clusters or outliers in the data?
Explain.

We do not do your work for you.
Count the number of words of each length to determine your frequency table. arrange in order of value, with smallest on left. The ordinate will indicate frequency. For example, 10 will have a frequency of 2. The relative frequency would be 10/total number of scores.
If you did not know this previously, it should give you a start.
