Hello, I completed a practice assignment, but I am not sure if I did this right or incorrectly. I haven't received the textbook yet, but it's on the way. Can you check to see if I am doing this correctly/incorrectly? If I made a mistake, can you please explain stepbystep in very simple terms so I can learn how to do these? My biggest question is for # 3 Part A. Find the Apparent Limits. I set it up as 6066, but is that a good interval width/size? Because when I tried to come up with 10 intervals the last set of numbers looked weird to me. lol. This is my first time taking statistics, so please forgive me. If you see anything else that looks incorrect, please inform me. Thank you so much!  Christina

You seemed to have made a basic error at the very beginning. The range is 60 and you wanted 10 intervals. However you made your interval widths = 7, not 6. The highest interval should be 6166, etc.

Oh okay! Thank you so much for pointing that out. I am very grateful for you! To make sure I am getting the hang of this: would the same also apply if I pick a 12 interval and a width size of 5? That would give me 6266, is that correct? Also, for parts BG did I start solving those correctly (hypothetically)? Lastly, are there any free SPSS software online that I can use? I have to print out my data, but I don't want to spend $100 ....

Intervals for 12  you are correct. BG solutions look OK  I did not check the actual counts. I have knowledge of SPSS software. Why not just print  I presume you can create the file you want in the format you need.
