    Back to back stemplot

    Hi there,

    I'm trying to do a back to back stemplot to compare data for the number of pages in hardback and paperback books. The data given ranges from 159 to 975 (33 in total) so how would I be able to show this huge range of data in the back to back stemplot. I know in reality it would really be unpractical and probably better to do a dotplot or something, but I have to do a stemplot for this question.

    Thanks in advance,
    Anna

    Without knowing the specifics, it's hard to advise. But since you've got values from 159 to 975, then you have values from 150 to 975 (counting by 25s, say) or from 100 to 1000 (counting by 100s or 50s). Does that help?
