    Stem and Leaf Diagram - How to do one with a range of 0 to 1057

    I have to make a Stem and Leaf Diagram/Plot, which I can do normally, but the data I've been given goes from 0 to 1057 (43 items of data, so the gaps are rather huge, near the ends the last two numbers are 750 then 1057, huge gap), and I simply don't know how to apply the rules to a range this large. I also cannot round, so as far as I can tell I'll have to make a steam and leaf plot that is 100 lines long, because your not allowed to skip numbers you don't have, e.g.

    0 | 0,0,0,4
    2 | 0
    4 | 3

    would have to be written as

    0 | 0,0,0,4
    1 |
    2 | 0
    3 |
    4 | 3

    even though I have no 1's or 3's, making my stem and leaf plot over 100 lines long.

    Any help would seriously be fantastic, I cant find anything only explaining how to scale a steam and leaf plot to a range this large. I did A-Level maths but I stumped by this, go figure

    You could make it like this:

    Code:
     0 | 04 05 40 90
     1 | 50 51 52 
     2 | 
     3 |
     4 | 
     5 |
     6 |
     7 |
     8 |
     9 |
    10 |
    Where

    1 | 40 means 140

    You need a stem with 10 leaves then.
