```Frequency Distribution
Steps in Organizing Data
 Arrange data into an array
 Decide on number of classes (k)
 Determine class interval (CI)
 Prepare tally sheet

Decide on number of classes (k)
 Use Sturges' Rule
k = 1 + 3.3 log n
k = 1 + 3.3 log n
= 1 + 3.3 log 35
= 1 + 3.3 (1.544) = 6.095 ≈6
Frequency Distribution
 Determine class interval (CI)
•Use the formula
CI = HV − LV
k
CI =( HV − LV)/ k = (99 − 71)/ 6 = 28/ 6 ≈5

 Let’s suppose that you are collecting data on how
many hours of sleep college students get each night.
After conducting a survey of 30 of your classmates,
you are left with the following set of scores:
7, 5, 8, 9, 4, 10, 7, 9, 9, 6, 5, 11, 6, 5, 9, 10, 8, 6,
9, 7, 9, 8, 4, 7, 8, 7, 6, 10, 4, 8
