1. Look at the following data of high temperatures for 50 days. The highest temperature is 59 and the lowest temperature is 39. If we were to create a simple frequency distribution of this data we would have 21 temperature values. This is greater than 20 values so we should create a grouped frequency distribution.
Data Set  High Temperatures for 50 Days
57 39 52 52 43
50 53 42 58 55
58 50 53 50 49
45 49 51 44 54
49 57 55 59 45

43 47 47 43 51
55 55 46 54 41
If we use this data and follow the suggestions for creation of a grouped frequency distribution, we would create the following grouped frequency distribution. Note that we use an interval size of three so that each class interval includes three score values. Please complete the distribution below. (50) pts.

2. Distribution of salaries of the ACME Corporation
a.) What is the approximate number of employees who earn between $33,000 and $43,000 annually?
b.) There are approximately 2,700 employees of ACME Corporation. About what percentage of employees earn over $76,999?
c.) The largest percentage of employees earn between $44,000$54,000. Which 2 salary ranges have roughly an equal amount of employees?
2. The pie chart below shows the ingredients used to make a sausage and mushroom pizza. The fraction of each ingredient by weight is shown in the pie chart below. We see that half of the pizza's weight comes from the crust. The mushrooms make up the smallest amount of the pizza by weight, since the slice corresponding to the mushrooms is smallest. Note that the sum of the decimal sizes of each slice is equal to 1 (the "whole" pizza").
a.) Sauce and cheese combine to form what percentage of the pizza?
b.) What would be the Central Angle for the Cheese portion of the pizza?
