To be able to answer this question, let us first explain what is the stem-and-leaf plot and how to read it. The stem-and-leaf plot is a representation of the data values in a table in which there are two main columns, one containing the first digit(s) and the other one containing last digit(s).

Depending on the given Key, we know how to read the data from the stem-and-leaf plot. For example, the Key: $11|2=11.2$ indicates that the data set contains two-digit values with one decimal. So here, the stem column represents the predecimal value and the leaf represents the decimal value.
