The teacher sent us a message on our email saying that we have to do this one not the one withthe one we did earlier for MATH240 Using the Journal Dataset, consider the variable DP05(days with precipitation that is more than 05 tenths of an inch). This is the number of days ineach month that had 0.5 inches or more of precipitation. For example, a value of 3 in DP05means that during three days of that month, it rained or snowed (equivalent) more than half aninch. Draw a histogram of DP05. Does DP05 have an approximately normal distribution? Does ithave an obvious skew (left or right) and any obvious outliers? If an analysis requires that DP05have a normal distribution, do you think that your results will be valid? Now consider thevariable EMXP (extreme maximum precipitation). That is the extreme precipitation in eachmonth, in tenths of a millimeter. For example, a value of 300 in EMXP means that it rained 30millimeters on the rainiest day of that month. Draw a histogram of EMXP. Does EMXP have anapproximately normal distribution? Does it have an obvious skew (left or right) and any obviousoutliers? If an analysis requires that EMXP have a normal distribution, do you think that yourresults will be valid? For additional details, please refer to the Module Two Journal AidTranscript document, Journal Rubric document, and Journal Data Set document in theAssignment Guidelines and Rubrics section of the courseSolutionThe variable taken into consideration DP05 is the number of days in each month that had 0.5inches or more of precipitation. The histogram is given below
