**Compare stem-and-leaf plots and histograms. How are they alike? What advantages do stem-and-leaf plots have over histograms? What advantages do histograms have over stem-and-leaf plots? **

It is easier to construct a stem-and-leaf diagram than a histogram. The distribution of the data can be easily seen from both diagrams. The frequency of each group of data is proportional to the length of each bar on a histogram or the leaf on a stem-and-leaf diagram.

Advantages stem-and-leaf have over histogram,

The stem and leaf plot essentially provides the same information as a histogram, with the following added benefits: The plot can be constructed quickly using pencil and paper. The values of each individual data point can be recovered from the plot.
