# Stem and Leaf Plot

A stem-and-leaf diagram, also called a stem and leaf plot( stemplot), is used for presenting quantitative data in a graphical format and it quickly summarizes the data by maintaining the individual data points. Stem-and-leaf displays retain the original data to at least two significant digits.

The "stem" is a column of the unique elements of data after removing the last digit and the final digits ("leaves") of each column are then placed in a row next to the appropriate column and sorted in numerical order.The advantage of stem-and -leaf diagrams is that you will not incur information loss in the process of data presentations.
