Please answer one or more of the following questions.

1) For what data in your professional or personal life would it be useful to construct a frequency table or histogram? If you give this some thought, you should be able to identify several sets of data.

2) After using the formula for determining the value of P16 (the 16th percentile) in a data set, the result is L = 5 (this whole number was obtained without rounding). How do we use this result to determine the value of P16?

3) It is common for car insurance companies to charge higher premiums for younger drivers. Younger drivers tend to earn less income than older drivers on average. So why are younger drivers expected to pay higher premiums? Do insurance companies have a right to charge different premiums to different customers for the same coverage based on their age?
