to simply organise your numbers.ajm If you can make a histogram, a dotplot, or even a boxplot; there is no reason to do a steam and leaf plot. It's the worst graph.

With a stem and leaf graph, you can see the distribution of data points, and determine whether it's normal distribution or not. As mentioned above, there are better graphs for doing that, though.
