How do you plot a stem and leaf plot?
- Step 1: Determine the smallest and largest number in the data. The game stats:
- Step 2: Identify the stems. For any number, the digit to the left of the right-most digit is a stem.
- Step 3: Draw a vertical line and list the stem numbers to the left of the line.
- Step 4: Fill in the leaves.
- Step 5: Sort the leaf data.
Regarding this, how do you find the key in a stem and leaf plot?
The stem-and-leaf plot only looks at the last digit (for the leaves) and all the digits before (for the stem). So I'll have to put a "key" or "legend" on this plot to show what I mean by the numbers in this plot. The ones digits will be the stem values, and the tenths will be the leaves.
Similarly one may ask, how is a stem and leaf plot similar to a dot plot?
Step-by-step explanation: A dot plot is similar to a simple histogram and useful for small data sets. This is used for discrete data with smaller range. A stem and leaf plot is also used for discrete data which fall within a small range.
Click the table to open the Table Tools tab at the top of the work area. Click the Design tab if it is not enabled. Click the “Plain Table 4” option in the Table Styles section of the ribbon. This takes the borders off the grid and leaves you with just the stem and leaf plot data.
