A clothing manufacturer wants to study men’s neck sizes to plan how many shirts of different sizes to produce (shirt sizes are generally one-half inch larger than measured neck sizes and rounded to the nearest half inch). The following histogram shows the distribution of neck sizes of 248 random volunteers for a health study conducted in Utah.
Neck Size (in)
a) Write a short description of this distribution (shape, center, spread, unusual features).
b) What two bins hold the most values for neck size?
c) If we add half an inch to the neck size and round up to the nearest half inch to get the shirt size, what are the two most popular shirt sizes?
