The company wants you to summarise the data and present it at the next board meeting in orderthat appropriate decisions can be made. Answer the following questions as a means to investigatethe best form of data presentation at the next board meeting. All graphs should be self explanatory.

(a) Construct a stem-and-leaf diagram. Don't round the data but be innovative in your choiceof a stem so that the diagram has between 5 and 10 stems.

(b) Construct three frequency distributions by using each of the following as the first class: "117 to less than 132", "119 to less than 126", and "120 to less than 122". Which frequency distribution provides the best summary? Explain your answer briefly. (Use a maximum of 100 words).

(c) Draw a histogram for the frequency distribution in Part (b) with the first class "119 to less than 126". On the same graph draw the frequency or percentage polygon.

(d) Draw an ogive or cumulative percentage polygon for the frequency distribution in Part (b) with the first class "119 to less than 126". The company wants to keep the plant operating each day and so is interested in the maximum number of staff absent on 95% of days. Use the ogive to determine the value of X where 95% of days have X (or fewer) staff absent. Describe briefly how you determined X or show your working on the ogive.

(e) When delivering the presentation at the board meeting, a board member asks why you didn't present the data in a Pareto diagram. How would you answer the question? (Use a maximum of 100 words).
