Thirty pieces of structural timber of the same dimensions were subjected to an increasing lateral force until they broke. The measured force in pounds required to break them is given in the following list. Plot the absolute frequency histogram. Try bin widths of 50, 100, and 200 lb. Which gives the most meaningful histogram? Try to find a better value
