Suggested answer to exercise: Heights of students, 3

Question 3: Where are the mode, the lower tail and the upper tail of this distribution?

##
Suggested answer

The mode is the value of the variable at highest part of the graph,
the region of highest frequency.
This is where student height is between 1650 and 1700 mm.

The lower tail is the extreme part of the distribution where there are
relatively few observations and these are small.
This is where student height is below 1550 mm.

The upper tail is the extreme part of the distribution where there are
relatively few observations and these are large.
This is where student height is above 1750 mm.
