Stem Plot With Decimals

Let's say we have a linear equation: 2x + 3y = 3. Adding y on its own doesn't change the equation's meaning: 2x + 3y = 3. Adding y again does the same thing: 2x + 3y = 3. Now lets say we want to do an addition on the y term. For example, 3 + 3. Doing this with our equation would change the equation to 2x + 4 = 6.

A stem-and-leaf plot is a way to organize and display numerical data or numbers. A stem-and-leaf plot organizes numbers in order from least to greatest. These numbers are also broken up based on place value, the numerical value a digit has because of its position in a number. The four main parts of a stem-and-leaf plot are: a title, stem column, leaf column, and a key.

Stem and leaf plots are a valuable way of organizing your data, and determining how many data points with a particular ones, tens, or hundreds digit you have. You can use stem and leaf plots to organize decimals much the same way that you would use stem and leaf plots to organize whole numbers. Since stem and leaf plots are not traditionally used to organize decimal numbers, you will need to create a key that makes it clear to your readers that you are organizing decimals.

Double stem and leaf plots are used to compare two distributions side-by-side. This type of double stem and leaf plot contains three columns, each separated by a vertical line. The center column contains the stems. The first and third columns each contain the leaves of a different distribution.

Often, skewness is easiest to detect with a histogram or a boxplot. The following stem-and-leaf plots are skewed. The stem-and-leaf plot with right-skewed data shows wait times. Most of the wait times are relatively short, and only a few wait times are long. A stem-and-leaf plot is a way to organize and display numerical data or numbers.
