3. A rather interesting, nonstatistical use of the stem and leaf plot is shown below. The image depicts a bus schedule, from the Redwood Transit System, as a stem and leaf plot. The hour is displayed as the stem. The minutes, shown separately for southbound (left of center) and northbound (right of center), make up the leaves.
