Approximately 1 5 million high school students take the SAT each
Approximately 1.5 million high school students take the SAT each year and nearly 80% of the college and universities without open admissions policies use SAT scores in making admission decisions (College Board, March 2009). The current version of the SAT includes three parts: reading comprehension, mathematics, and writing. A perfect combined score for all three parts is 2400. A sample of SAT scores for the combined three-part SAT are as follows:

a. Show a frequency distribution and histogram. Begin with the first class starting at 800 and use a class width of 200.
b. Comment on the shape of the distribution.
c. What other observations can be made about the SAT scores based on the tabular and graphicalsummaries?
