# Graph description: Distribution of residuals

A graph with two panels.

In the first panel there is a histogram. The horizontal axis is labelled “Residuals (mm)” and numbered -50, 0, 50. The vertical axis is labelled “Frequency” and numbered 0, 10, 20, 30. There are vertical bars as follows, base then height: -40 to -30, 5; -30 to -20, 7; -20 to -10, 22; -10 to 0, 32; 0 to 10, 20; 10 to 20, 17; 20 to 30, 7; 30 to 40, 7; 40 to 50, 2; 60 to 70, 1.

In the second panel, there is a Normal plot. This is a scatter diagram with points and a line. The horizontal axis is labelled “Inverse Normal” and numbered -50, 0, 50. The vertical axis is labelled “Residuals (mm)” and numbered -50, 0, 50, 100. A straight line goes diagonally from Inverse Normal = -45, Residual = -45, to Inverse Normal = +45, Residual = +45. Each point is represented by a little hollow diamond shape. The points form a curving line, rising progressively more steeply. At the bottom it is just above the straight line. As it rises it goes slightly below the straight line then rises just above the straight line at the top.
