In this assignment, you will be required to use the heart rate | stastistic | Herzing University


In this assignment, you will be required to use the Heart Rate Dataset to complete the following:

  • Use the classification of variables from the Unit 1 assignment to match each variable to one appropriate type of graph.
  • Create graphs of those variables
  • Give a brief written description of how the values of each variable are distributed in the sample. What does the graph tell us about the data in the heart rate sample?


  1. Open the Heart Rate Dataset in Excel
  2. Using the classification of variables from Unit 1 assignment as qualitative, quantitative discrete, or quantitative continuous, match each of the 3 variables to the most appropriate graph type. (For example, qualitative data can best be displayed with a pie chart or bar graph; continuous numerical data can best be displayed using a histogram)
  3. Use the graphing functions in Excel to create an appropriate graph of the data for each variable. Remember to properly label and title your graphs to identify what the graph is about clearly.
