# psy/315

posted by .

A social psychologist asked 15 college students how many times they “fell in
love” before they were 11 years old. The numbers of times were as follows:
2, 0, 6, 0, 3, 1, 0, 4, 9, 0, 5, 6, 1, 0, 2
Make (a) a frequency table and (b) a histogram. Then (c) describe the general
shape of the distribution.

• psy/315 -

• psy/315 -

Arrange scores in order of value and tally the frequency of each score for the frequency table.

0 = 5
1 = ?
2 = ?
3 = ?
4 = ?
5 = ?
6 = ?
9 = ?

We cannot reproduce a histogram here. However, even the frequency table should give you an idea of the relative shape (normal, positively skewed, negatively skewed or bimodal).
