Frequency Distribution Use the hand lengths in Exercise to construct a frequency distribution. Use a class width of 10 mm, and use 150 mm as the lower class limit of the first class.

Exercise

Designing Gloves An engineer is designing a machine to manufacture gloves and she obtains the following sample of hand lengths (mm) of randomly selected adult males (based on anthropométrie survey data from Gordon, Churchill, et al.):

a. Are exact hand lengths from a population that is discrete or continuous?

b. What is the level of measurement of the hand lengths? (nominal, ordinal, interval, ratio)
