Yes, because box plot and dot plot can be used both for numerical data. However, dot plot is used for relatively small data while box plot can be used with large number of data. Dot plots display cluster or gaps of data while box plot shows the range and distribution of data along a number line.

Driven by technological advances and financial pressures, the number of surgeries performed in physicians' offices nationwide has been increasing over the years. The function f(t)=0.00447t3+0.09864t2+0.05192t+0.8(0t15) gives the number of surgeries (in millions) performed in physicians' offices in year t, with t=0 corresponding to the beginning of 1986.
a. Plot the graph of f in the viewing window [0,15]×[0,10].
b. Prove that f is increasing on the interval [0, 15].

The pathogen Phytophthora capsici causes bell pepper plants to wilt and die. A research project was designed to study the effect of soil water content and the spread of the disease in fields of bell peppers. It is thought that too much water helps spread the disease. The fields were divided into rows and quadrants. The soil water content (percent of water by volume of soil) was determined for each plot. An important first step in such a research project is to give a statistical description of the data.

The two-way table summarizes data from an experiment comparing the effectiveness of three different diets (A, B, and C) on weight loss. Researchers randomly assigned 300 volunteer subjects to the three diets. The response variable was whether each subject lost weight over a 1-year period. Diet Lost weight?

ABC Total  Yes 60180 No 40120 Total 90100110300

Suppose we randomly select one of the subjects from the experiment. Show that the events "Diet B" and "Lost weight" are independent.

You are given the sample mean and the population standard deviation. Use this information to construct 90% and 95% confidence intervals for the population mean. Interpret the results and compare the widths of the confidence intervals. From a random sample of 24 months from January 2006 through December 2016, the mean number of tornadoes per month in the United States was about 100. Assume the population standard deviation is 114.
