Problem 14BSC

Earthquake Depths Use the frequency distribution from Exercise 24 in Section 2-2 to construct a histogram. Using a strict interpretation of the requirements for a normal distribution, do the depths appear to be normally distributed? Why or why not?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 1

 Depth(y) 6.6 2 15.3 17.2 3.2 2.2 14.8 5.6 6.1 9.1 18.5 8.1 10 13.7 8 7 18.6 8.2 5.7 18.9 13.7 4.5 8.3 6 14.2 5.4 17.7 9.9 17.3 5.1 5.3 15.9 13.7 4.2 5.7 5.9 15.1 8.5 14.7 16.4 4.7 8.6 8.2 15.2 10.1 14.5 5.2 7.9 3.3 6.4

The width of each bar has to be equal and the height has to equal the frequency:

This is in the form,

 C - I Frequency 1-5 7 5-9 21 9-13 4 13-17 12 17-21 6 21-25 0

No, because the histogram is not bell shaped.
