Constructing Histograms. In Exercises, construct the histograms and answer the given questions.

Earthquake Depths Use the frequency distribution from Exercise 1 in Section 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?

Exercise 1

Constructing Frequency Distributions. In Exercise, use the indicated data and construct the frequency distribution.

Earthquake Depths Refer to the earthquake depths listed in Data Set 16 in Appendix B. Begin with a lower class limit of 1.00 km and use a class width of 4.00 km. Using a very strict interpretation of the requirements for a normal distribution, do the depths appear to be normally distributed?
