Comparing data displays


Leonard measured the mass of each pumpkin in his patch in kilograms. He created both a histogram and a box plot to display the same data:
A histogram plots Number of pumpkins, versus Mass in kilograms, from 0 to 15, in increments of 3. Bar heights are approximately as follows. From 0 to 3, 4. From 3 to 6, 5. From 6 to 9, 8. From 9 to 12, 6. From 12 to 15, 2.
A horizontal box plot is labeled, Mass in kilograms, and marked from 0 to 15 in increments of 1. A left whisker extends from 1 to 4. The box extends from 4 to 9 and is divided into 2 parts by a vertical line segment at 8. The right whisker extends from 9 to 14. All values estimated.
