Absolute, relative, cumulative frequency and statistical tables

Problems

In a survey to $$20$$ inhabitants of Barcelona on how many times a week they buy in small shops in the city, the obtained answers are: $$$2,0,3,1,4,5,1,1,2,3,0,0,1,3,2,5,4,3,3,2$$$

Construct a frequency table and calculate what percentage of the population make purchases $$3$$ times or less per week in small shops.

Development:

Purchases in small shops Absolute frequency $$f_i$$ Relative frequency $$n_i$$ Cumulative frequency $$F_i$$ Cumulative relative frequency $$N_i$$
$$0$$ $$3$$ $$\dfrac{3}{20}$$ $$3$$ $$\dfrac{3}{20}$$
$$1$$ $$4$$ $$\dfrac{4}{20}$$ $$3+4=7$$ $$\dfrac{7}{20}$$
$$2$$ $$4$$ $$\dfrac{4}{20}$$ $$3+4+4=11$$ $$\dfrac{11}{20}$$
$$3$$ $$5$$ $$\dfrac{5}{20}$$ $$11+5=16$$ $$\dfrac{16}{20}=0,8=80\%$$
$$4$$ $$2$$ $$\dfrac{2}{20}$$ $$16+2=18$$ $$\displaystyle\frac{18}{20}$$
$$5$$ $$2$$ $$\dfrac{2}{20}$$ $$18+2=20$$ $$\dfrac{20}{20}=1$$
$$\sum$$ $$20$$ $$1$$

Solution:

Purchases in small shops Absolute frequency $$f_i$$ Realtive frequency $$n_i$$ Cumulative frequency $$F_i$$ Cumulative relative frequency $$N_i$$
$$0$$ $$3$$ $$\dfrac{3}{20}$$ $$3$$ $$\dfrac{3}{20}$$
$$1$$ $$4$$ $$\dfrac{4}{20}$$ $$3+4=7$$ $$\dfrac{7}{20}$$
$$2$$ $$4$$ $$\dfrac{4}{20}$$ $$3+4+4=11$$ $$\dfrac{11}{20}$$
$$3$$ $$5$$ $$\dfrac{5}{20}$$ $$11+5=16$$ $$\dfrac{16}{20}=0,8=80\%$$
$$4$$ $$2$$ $$\dfrac{2}{20}$$ $$16+2=18$$ $$\displaystyle\frac{18}{20}$$
$$5$$ $$2$$ $$\dfrac{2}{20}$$ $$18+2=20$$ $$\dfrac{20}{20}=1$$
$$\sum$$ $$20$$ $$1$$

$$80\%$$ of the survey participants make purchases $$3$$ times or less per week in small shops.
