    Stem and leaf plot

    I have the following numbers and need to set up stem and leaf plot:
    68.9
    69.2
    69.6
    151.1
    171.6
    355.2
    370.4
    377.7
    587.9
    702.8
    708.3

    I am thinking of using a range of 0 - 7 as stem. But I am not so sure how to do the leaf part. Can I use 2 digit number in the leaf?

    from what I read on wiki your left column would be 100s, and the right column would be rounded to the nearest 10

    so like this

    $\begin{array}{r l}
    0 & 7 ~7 ~7 \\
    1 & 5~ 7 \\
    3 & 6 ~7 ~8 \\
    \dots \end{array}$

    you can finish the plot

    Thank you very much, romsek but I think we can not skip the stem even there is no value in it right?

    0 7 7 7
    1 5 7
    2
    3 6 7 8
