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

1. ## 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

2. 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.
