Question

# The table shows the monthly attendance in thousands at museums in one country over a 12- month period.

a) Complete the scatter plot to represent the data.

b) Identify any outlier in the scatter plot

c) What situation might have caused an outlier?

Hint:

### A scatter plot is a graphical representation of data using the coordinate points. An outlier is a set of points that stay quite far away from the trend line or cluster.

We are asked to plot a scatter graph for the given table, find an outlier, if any and reason to have an outlier.

## The correct answer is: We are asked to plot a scatter graph for the given table, find an outlier, if any and reason to have an outlier.

### ANSWER:

Step 1 of 3:

Take month in the x- axis and people visited in y- axis.

Then the corresponding coordinate points would be:

(5,6),(5,9),(6,6),(6,12),(6,36),(7,3),(10,21),(10,27),(11,18),(11,24),(12,24),(12,18),(12,3)

Thus, the corresponding scatter plot is:

Step 2 of 3:

The outlier in the scatter plot would be at (6, 36).

Step 3 of 3:

The reason for the formation of an outlier is because there were an exponential number of visitors to the museum on the sixth month with respect to the average visitors.

Step 2 of 3:

The outlier in the scatter plot would be at (6, 36).

Step 3 of 3:

The reason for the formation of an outlier is because there were an exponential number of visitors to the museum on the sixth month with respect to the average visitors.

Outliers are points that behave differently from the rest of the group. They portray an abnormality in the scatter plot which in turn is caused by the drastic change in the coordinate point with respective to other values.

It is not necessary that every scatter plot must have either a cluster or an outlier. There are graphs that have none.

Scattered plots can display relationships between two pairs of continuous data. These graphs show symbols at the paired variables' data points' X and Y coordinates. Scattergrams and scatter charts are other names for scatterplots.

By looking at the dot pattern on a scatterplot, you may detect whether two continuous variables are correlated or related. The scatterplot shows the direction of any relationship and whether it is linear or curved if one exists. 1.) values on the X-axis of a continuous variable. When one of the variables may be categorized as an independent variable, this is typically the independent variable.

2.) Values on the Y-axis of a continuous variable are usually the dependent variable.

3.) Plotting of symbols at your data's (X, Y) coordinates. Represents various groups on the same graph; the graph can use various colored or shaped symbols.
