How To Get The Stem and Leaf Plot Using Excel/PHstat?

A data set of the midterm scores are:
68    94   63   75   71   88   64

Use the above data to get the stem and leaf plot.
The steps:
1) Pull down the PHstat menu and choose descriptive statistics. Then choose stem and
leaf plot.
2) Enter the data as following :

3) The output :

To get an idea about the classification of the data, follow the first two steps.
1- Draw the stem and leaf plot first to find    2- Create a new column named Bin including
the categories (intervals or Bins).             the categories.

How To Plot A Histogram Using TI-83?

Entering data
The easiest way to enter a list of data is to use STAT Edit. Suppose we wish to enter the
following list:
25, 18, 12, 27, 34, 48
Let’s enter it into the default list L1.

Leave the editor by pressing <2nd>QUIT.

Press <2nd>STAT PLOT. Note that there are three plots you can specify for display (all at
once if you wish!)

Choose Plot1. Change it from Off to On.
There are six types of plots to choose from. Move the cursor over to the third one in the first
row. This is a histogram. Press ENTER.

The argument for Xlist should be L1, the list containing our data. If we had any frequency
counts in another data list, this would need to be entered for Freq. This is not the case for our
example, so leave it as "1", the default.

Once this is done, press GRAPH. You may need to make some adjustments before the plot
will show up on the screen. A good way to get a quick viewing window appropriate for the
data and for the plot type selected is ZoomStat: Press ZOOM, then choose 9: ZoomStat.

If this does not result in an adequate graph, press WINDOW to see some of the
specifications. For a histogram, Xscl is the width of the intervals.

While viewing the histogram, pressing TRACE will allow you to get more information out of
the graph. For example, the image above shows that the second rectangle, which represents
the interval [21, 30), contains two observations.

Move the cursor left and right to get information on each interval.
