Firstly, since the smallest value in the provided data set is 4343 and the largest is 113113, by using the formula

Approximate class width=Largest data valueSmallest data valueNumber of classes,\text{Approximate class width}=\frac{\text{Largest data value}-\text{Smallest data value}}{\text{Number of classes}},

the number of classes is:

1134310=7010=7.\frac{113-43}{10}=\frac{70}{10}=7.

Thus, the classes are the following intervals:

[43,52], [53,62], [63,72], [73,82], [83,92], [93,102], [103,113].[43,52],~[53,62],~[63,72],~[73,82],~[83,92],~[93, 102],~[103, 113].
