0          2          1          1          0          6          1          7

Construct a frequency table for the number of novels read.

2)      The frequency table shows the weights in ounces of 30 stones

Weight (oz)     Number of Stones

1.2-1.6                         5

1.7-2.1                         2

2.2-2.6                         5

2.7-3.1                         5

3.2-3.6                                                  13

Use the above information to construct a cumulative frequency table for the data.
