I attached two files.
The file soil.xls contains dataabout daily soil evaporation and a number of predictors.
Use EXP (daily soil evaporation) as your dependent variable and MAXAT (maximum daily temperature) as your independent variable.
a. Plot the histogramof the two variables
b. Show the Box plotof the two variables
c. Calculate simple statisticsfor the dependent and the independent variable. Comment on the results.
d. Do scatter plotof EXP against MAXAT
e. Write a brief paragraph on the graphs
The solution provides step by step method for the calculation of descriptive statistics. Formula for the calculation and Interpretations of the results are also included.
