Frequency Tables, Stem-and-Leaf Plots, and Line Plots 7-1
Course 2

Learn to organize and interpret data in frequency tables and stem-and-leaf plots, and line plots.

Cumulative frequency is the total of a frequency and all the frequencies below it in a frequency table. It is a running total of the frequencies in each category. You determine the cumulative frequency by adding the top frequency to the next frequency, and then to the next frequency, and so on. The total number in your cumulative frequency should equal the total number of data in your table.

A stem-and-leaf plot is a plot where each data value is split into a "leaf" (usually the last digit) and a "stem" (the other digits). For example "32" would be split into "3" (stem) and "2" (leaf). The stem is the number in the tens place. Stems can occur several times, but they are only listed once. The leaves are the numbers in the ones place. Leaves can occur several times, and should be listed each time they occur.

Usually uses Xs above the numbers.
A line plot is a graph that shows frequency (how often something happens) of data along a number line. Usually uses Xs above the numbers. Each X stands for 1. It is almost like a very simple bar graph.

Additional Example 1: Organizing and Interpreting Data in a Frequency Table
The list shows the average high temperatures for 20 cities on one February day. Make a cumulative frequency table of the data. How many cities had average high temperature below 59 degrees? 69, 66, 65, 51, 50, 50, 44, 41, 38, 32, 32, 28, 20, 18, 12, 8, 8, 4, 2, 2 February Temperatures in 20 Cities Average Highs Frequency Cumulative Frequency Step 1: Choose a scale that includes all of the data values. Then separate the scale into equal intervals. 0–19 20–39 40–59 60–79

Additional Example 2: Organizing and Interpreting Data in a Stem-and-Leaf Plot
The data shows the number of years coached by the top 15 coaches in the all-time NFL coaching victories. Make a stem-and-leaf plot of the data. Then find the number of coaches who coached fewer than 25 years. 33, 40, 29, 33, 23, 22, 20, 21, 18, 23, 17, 15, 15, 12, 17 Step 1: Order the data from least to greatest. Since the data values range from 12 to 40, use tens digits for the stems and ones digits for the leaves.
