**To create a back to back**stem-and-leaf plot, we do the same thing on the left side of the plot using Set 1 data. Again, and this can be a little tricky at first, the leaf numbers go in order with the smallest being closest to the stem and getting larger as you move out further to the left.

Similarly, you may ask, what is the purpose of a back to back Stemplot?

A **back-to-back stemplot** is used for numerical data, where two sets of data use the same set of stems, but one data set radiates to the left and the other radiates to the right.

**Stem-and-leaf plots are**an effective way to present data, allowing

**us**to see at a glance the distribution of numbers. A

**back to back stem-and-leaf plot**goes one step further and allows for easy comparison of two sets of numbers.

Keeping this in consideration, how do you do a back to back stem and leaf plot in Excel?
