Earthquake Magnitude
Using the data from Table 1, complete the table below by entering in the second column the number of earthquakes having the magnitude listed or greater. The first and last two values have already been entered. Then, plot these pairs of values as points of a graph on Figure 7 (the first and last two points have already been plotted), and draw a smooth curve that passes through or very close to the plotted points so as to define the trend.
