# Lesson 6 Different Combinations Practice Understanding

One hundred forty-four college freshmen were given a math placement exam with

Score interval | Midpoint of interval | Frequency of interval |
---|---|---|

### 1.

Make a histogram of the grouped data in the chart. (Note: The midpoint of each cell is given in the horizontal axis. The sides of the cells will match the score interval. Frequency is the vertical height.)

Locate the midpoint at the top of each cell in your histogram and connect each consecutive midpoint with straight line segments. The resulting figure is called a frequency polygon. If you smooth the line segments out into a smooth curve, you will create a frequency curve. Make a frequency curve on your histogram. It should look something like the figure.

In problems 12–17, several of the functions studied in NC Math 1 through NC Math 3 are identified.

For each function, identify the:

Domain

Range

Intervals of increase and decrease

Whether it’s even, odd or neither

Finally, describe the graph and any interesting feature of the graph.
