The dot plot below shows the hourly rate of some babysitters in a city: A number line is shown from 1 dollar to 7 dollars in increments of 1 dollar for each tick mark. The horizontal axis label is Dollar per hour. There are 2 dots above 4 dollars, 3 dots above 5 dollars, 3 dots above 6 dollars, and 2 dots above 7 dollars. The title of the line plot is Babysitting Rates. Which statement best describes the shape of the data? It is symmetric and has no gaps. It is not symmetric and has a peak at $7.00. It is a cluster from $1.00 to $7.00 and has no gaps. It is a cluster from $1.00 to $7.00 and has a peak at $6.00.

A dot plot is like a histogram but it uses dots instead of bars. Like histogram, a dot plot also presents the frequency of data points. The dot plot as described by the problem is shown in the picture. A bell shape is drawn for a symmetrical data. From the choices, the answer is: It is symmetric and has no gaps. The other statements are wrong because the peak is at $5 or $6.
