Problem 1BSC

Normal Quantite Plot Data Set 1 includes the heights of 40 randomly selected women. If you were to construct a histogram of those heights, what shape do you expect the histogram to have? If you were to construct a normal quantile plot of those heights, what pattern would you expect to see in the graph?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Answer :

Step 1 of 1 :

Normal Quantile Plot Data Set 1 includes the heights of 40 randomly selected women.

The graph is given below.

The heights of women are approximately normally distributed.

Then the histogram needs to have a rough bell shape.

Then the normal quantile plot has to be roughly linear.
