This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 16, Unit 5, Grade 7. Students read and answer the question posed in the Example 2. The histogram indicates the differences in the number of words in the collection of books. How many words are typical for a best-selling children's book? Answering this question would involve collecting data, and there would be variability in those data. This makes the question a statistical question.
