Step by step solution

Step 1 of 3

(a)

One of the variables measured in the 2010 The Men’s Giant Slalom skiing event is Slalom times in second. And the other variable is the number of Skiers. We have given a histogram and 5-number summary of the event.

The distribution is unimodal and skewed to the right. The Median Slalom time is about 165 seconds. The minimum Slalom times is 156 and maximum of 215. We also see two possible outliers with Slalom times of 215 and 206 . Almost half of the number of skiers the Slalom time is between 160 and 178.
