Here is a table of values for daily maximum relative humidity over a two-week period at a nearby weather station. Find a partner and discuss the following questions and answers:

  • How many measurements are shown here?
  • How often were they taken?
  • In what units is relative humidity measured?
  • What is the lowest value (minimum)?
  • What is the highest value (maximum)?
  • Find the average humidity for the entire week.
  • Do any of the days vary greatly from the average? Why might this be? What other information could you use to help find out?

Create a histogram of relative humidity over the past week.
