The following dotplot shows the number of strokes taken by 20 professional golfers competing at an 18-hole golf course.

The figure presents a dotplot titled Number of Strokes, and the numbers 62 through 70 are indicated, in increments of 1. The dotplot contains 20 data points. The data are as follows. 62 strokes, 0 golfers. 63 strokes, 0 golfers. 64 strokes, 2 golfers. 65 strokes, 4 golfers. 66 strokes, 2 golfers. 67 strokes, 6 golfers. 68 strokes, 3 golfers. 69 strokes, 3 golfers. 70 strokes, 0 golfers.
Which of the following best describes the type of variable represented in the dotplot?
A??

Quantitative and discrete
A

The figure presents a histogram. The horizontal axis is labeled Tree Diameter, in centimeters, and the numbers 0 through 55, in increments of 5, are indicated. The vertical axis is labeled Frequency, and the numbers 0 through 30, in increments of 5, are indicated. The data represented in the histogram are as follows. Note that all values are approximate. 0 through 5 centimeters, 4. 5 through 10 centimeters, 20. 10 through 15 centimeters, 27. 15 through 20 centimeters, 22. 20 through 25 centimeters, 6. 25 through 30 centimeters, 0. 30 through 35 centimeters, 0. 35 through 40 centimeters, 0. 40 through 45 centimeters, 4. 45 through 50 centimeters, 10. 50 through 55 centimeters, 6.
Which of the following is the best description of the distribution?
A? there is two clusters on each side with a gap between 25-40, but would that be the best terminology or would it be a right skew?
The distribution consists of two clusters and a gap.
A

The distribution is approximately normal.
B

The distribution is symmetric with a skew to the right.
C

The distribution is skewed to the left.
D

The distribution is uniform.
E
