Representations and Summaries of Raisins Data 
Is it unusual for a box of raisins to contain 86 raisins? In an effort to address this question, 30 snacksize boxes of raisins were opened and the raisins counted in each box. Here is the raisincount data from the 30 boxes.






























Here is a line plot created from the data set.
Here is a stemandleaf plot of the data set.
Here is a tally sheet created from the data set.
The next two figures show the stem plot and the tally sheet rotated 90 degrees.


Here is a histogram of the data set, created using a TI83 calculator.
Here is a boxandwhiskers plot of the data set, also created using a TI83 calculator.
Here are numerical representations and summaries as shown on a TI83 calculator.
