In statistics this is usually termed a stem-leaf plot. To see some I suggest going to and querying for stem leaf plot.

What is a stem and leaf diagram?

A stem and leaf diagram is a visual representation of the distribution of your data, similar to a histogram. The advantage is that a stem and leaf diagram is very quick and easy to put together as it uses only the numbers of your dataset. Let's say you had the following dataset: 32 4 36 4 16 23 30 45 31 6 31 29 which is equivalent to: 32 04 36 04 16 23 30 45 31 06 31 29 or looking at it another way: 3|2 0|4 3|6 0|4 1|6 2|3 3|0 4|5 3|1 0|6 3|1 2|9 I've just placed a "|" as a visual way of separating the tens from the units. The numbers before the "|" (i.e. 0,1,2,3,4) will be our "stems". Each corresponding number after the "|" will form the "leaves" and be placed next to the appropriate stem. When you put it together the stem and leaf diagram looks like this: 0|446 1|6 2|39 3|26011 4|5 The most appropriate stem and leaves depend on the particular dataset. For example, the stem and leaf diagram of the following set of numbers: 100.5 100.4 99.9 100.5 101.4 100.1 100.5 101.9 Would look like this: 099|9 100|54515 101|49

How do you make a stem and leaf diagram?

Let's say you have this data:01021011202130Enumerate the stem of the data.0,1,2, and 3 are stems since it is found first to the left.*Note that two digits like 234 have a stem of23.Enumerate the leaf.0-12 {01 and 02: the leaf are 1 and 2 since they are found first to your right}1-01 {same applies}2-01 {same applies}3-0 {same applies, the leaf is 0 since 0 is found first to the right of 30}There you have it! A stem and leaf diagram.Range formula:highest data-lowest data=rangeSo, 30-1 is 29. 29 is the range.
