RANK ORDER LIST
Raw data: Data which is in random order (i.e.) arranged in any kind of order is called raw data. One way to present or organize the data in a more meaningful way is to arrange it in rank order or sorting it into categories. Rank order means in order from highest to lowest. Note: Data should be presented clearly. A good presentation makes statistical data easy to read and understand.
Example: B,C,A,B,A,D,E,C,A,B,B,E,B. this 15 grade are given rank order below:
A,A,AB,B,B,B,C,C,C,D,E,E,F.

FREQUENCY TABLE
Raw can also be arranged in a table called the frequency table as shown in the diagram below. The number of times each particular value occurs is called its frequency. The frequency table is usually made up of three columns.
 The first column contains each item (or each of the events) given in the raw data and they are usually arranged in order of magnitude starting with the smallest.
 The second column contains the tally charts which represent the number of times a particular item or events takes place.
 The third column is called the frequency column. To find the frequency of each item, simply add or count the tally marks in each row. To find the total frequency must be equal to the following raw data shows the number of vehicles owned by 25 businessmen in Lagos.
Example: 2, 5, 4, 6,3, 4, 7, 5, 7, 7, 8, 9, 5, 3,4, 4, 8, 2, 2, 2, 5

Evaluation
The following figures show the number of children performing in a sample of 40 households.
1, 2, 4, 3, 5, 8, 3, 2, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 5, 4, 2, 1, 3, 2, 4, 5, 3, 8, 7, 6, 3, 8, 6, 3, 5, 7, 5, 4, 3
 Use a tally mark to prepare a frequency table for this data.
 What is the highest frequency to the number of children per family?

THE LINE GRAPH
A LineGraph is a barchart with bar replaced by straight lines which represent the frequency of each item.
Example: The scores of 30 students in mathematics test are shown below
8, 6, 2, 0, 0, 2, 4, 1, 0, 6
4, 2, 8, 8, 1, 0, 0, 2, 4, 2
2, 8, 6, 4, 1, 0, 0, 6, 2, 4
Use the frequency table to construct a linegraph solution
Vehicles  Tally  Frequency 
0  IIII II  7 
1  III  3 
2  IIII II  7 
4  IIII  5 
6  IIII  4 
6  IIII  4 
GENERAL EVALUATION QUESTION
Twenty four pupils went out to pick some pears. The number of pears picked by each pupil was recorded as follows:
6, 4, 3, 2, 3, 4, 1, 3, 5, 1, 6, 2,
2, 3, 2, 2, 3, 5, 2, 4, 3, 3, 1, 6
 Prepare a tally sheet and frequency table for the data
 Construct a linegraph for the distribution
 Which is the least number of pears picked?
REVISION QUESTION
The shoe sizes of 20 boys are as follows:
8, 10, 9, 10, 11, 9, 8, 9, 12, 9
10, 9, 9, 8, 8, 9, 10, 19, 9, 11
 Prepare a tally sheet and frequency table for the data
 Which shoe size is the most common among the boys?
 How many boys wear size 10 and above?

THEORY
 The scores of some students in mathematics test were as follows: 1, 0, 7, 7, 8, 6, 1, 0, 8, 8, 9, 6, 5, 9, 9, 8, 8, 5, 5, 1, 0, 9, 9, 8, 9, 7, 5, 9, 7, 1, 0, 8, 6, 7, 7, 8, 1, 0


 Form a frequency table distribution
 How many students wrote the test?
 How many students scored less than seven?
 Which score occurred most often

 The following are the number of goals during interhouse football competition in a certain school.
5 0 4 2 5 1 3
2 4 0 0 3 0 2
1 2 3 3 4 0 5
Draw a line graph for the data.
