Algebra 2

The lengths of boats in a harbor, in feet, are listed below.

17, 16, 56, 50, 14, 30, 12, 33, 82, 16, 10, 52, 25, 25, 19, 75, 24, 12, 30, 12, 20, 38, 26, 36, 33, 24, 18, 26, 40, 40

(a) Make a frequency table for the data set. Use 5-14 as the first class interval.
(b) Use the table to draw a histogram.
(c) Describe the type of distribution. Identify the relationship of the mean and the median.

For (a) I distributed the numbers following the fashion of 5-14. In other words like this:
5-14
15-23
24-32
33-41
42-50
51-59
60-69
70-79

I also made the histogram for (b).

I don't understand what (c) is asking though. Is it asking me to identify what shape the histogram is making? And what does it mean by identify the relationship between the mean and the median?

I appreciate any help!
Thank you!

    33-41
    42-50
    51-59
