ThisquestionrequiresyoutouseStatCrunch tocreateahistogramandboxplot.Eachpartofthe
questionthatrequiresStatCrunchincludesdirectionsforcreatingtheoutputinthesoftware.Firstyou
needtoopenthedatasetinStatCrunch:
Delays.
Or,opentheattachedExcelfile andcopy(Ctl+A,Ctl+C)thedata.OpenanewStatCrunch
worksheet,clickintheboxwiththetextVar1,andpastethedata(Ctl+V).Beforeworkingthrough
thequestions,makesurethevariablenamesareinthetoprowoftheworksheet.
AsampleofflightsdepartingfromeitherCincinnatiorChicagoinFebruary2015wasselected.Forthose
flightswhichweredelayed,thelengthofthedelay(inminutes)wasrecorded.UseStatCrunchtocreatea
histogramofthevariableDelaylength(Graph>Histogram).Thencalculatesummarystatisticsforthe
variableDelaylength(Stat>SummaryStats>Columns).Usetheoutputtodescribethedistributionround
Thedistributionofdelaylengthhasashapethatis .Themeandelaylengthwas
lengthinoursampleof delayedflightswas minutes,whilethemaximumwas
minutes.Therearetwoflightswithdelaylengthsgreaterthan whichwouldlikelybeclassifiedas

Accordingto  Rule,weestimatethat ofdelayedflightswillhavea
