### Negatively Skewed Distribution, Population, Frequency Distribution Graph, Distribution

The key terms used in these Statistic chapters include Negatively Skewed Distribution & Positively Skewed Distribution, Frequency Distribution Graph, Distribution, Population & Sample The Statistic Exam is based on these chapters.

In a positively skewed distribution, the scores pile up on the left side of the distribution and taper off to the right.​

True

A histogram is constructed so that adjacent bars touch.

True
