4. Constructing a Frequency Distribution Table & Histogram 

The Bureau of Finance of the Los Angeles Sheriff has always been a relaxed place to work.  Employees are allowed 60 minutes for a lunch break and are not required to sign or punch in or out.  In recent times the head of Department has come to suspect that employees are taking advantage of the comfortable atmosphere by disappearing for more than 60 minutes at lunch.  He decides to check his suspicions by monitoring for a week the number of minutes spent at lunch by each employee in a usual department of the Bureau.  He considers a lunch break of up to 65 minutes acceptable and longer than that, unacceptable.   

problem: Following are the data collected.  Should the head of the Bureau be concerned about the time taken at lunch by employees and why?  Present the data (Frequency Distribution) in ways to support your answer. 

Raw Data (Minutes at lunch) 

75 93 66 68 60 65 63 85  

78 86 73 77 69 63 64 87  

93 61 80 65 82 75 60 64  

62 84 64 63 63 61 70 67 

76 73 72 91 80 70 89 82
