Step 1

1 of 4Note that among all the given values, 28 is the smallest and 66 is the greatest. Since we want five classes therefore the class width is given by

$\begin{aligned}\text{Class width}&=\dfrac{\text{largest data value-smallest data value}}{\text{number of classes}}\\&=\dfrac{66-28}{5}\\&=7.6\end{aligned}$

The nearest whole number to 7.6 is 8, thus the class width is 8.
