b. Prepare a grouped relative frequency distribution of these data.
c. Draw a relative frequency histogram of these data.
d. Prepare a cumulative relative frequency distribution of these same data.
e. Draw an ogive of these data.
f. Using the ogive, find the value that exceeds 70% of the data. Describe the relationship among the answer, 70%, the data, and the idea of the cumulative relative frequency distribution.
