This information indicates that our data ranges from values close to zero to
values close to 100. Working with whole numbers, we can select the range
of variation of the data as (0,100). To produce a frequency distribution we
will use the interval (10,90) dividing it into 8 bins of width 10 each.
Select the program
data is already loaded in ΣDAT, and the option Col should hold the value
1 since we have only one column in ΣDAT.
Change X-Min to 10, Bin Count to 8, and Bin Width to 10, then press
Using the RPN mode, the results are shown in the stack as a column vector in
stack level 2, and a row vector of two components in stack level 1. The
vector in stack level 1 is the number of outliers outside of the interval where
the frequency count was performed. For this case, I get the values [ 25. 22.]
indicating that there are, in my ΣDAT vector, 25 values smaller than 10 and
22 larger than 90.
Press ƒ to drop the vector of outliers from the stack. The remaining
result is the frequency count of data. This can be translated into a table
as shown below.
This table was prepared from the information we provided to generate the
frequency distribution, although the only column returned by the calculator is
the Frequency column (f

average of the class boundaries for each class.
frequency is obtained by adding to each value in the last column, except the
first, the frequency in the next row, and replacing the result in the last column
