What does it mean if a number occurs more than once in a row of a steam-and- leaf plot?

I'm trying to help my 5th grader with some math homework, and I content understand steam-and-leaf plots.

If a number occurs twice in the stem and leaf plot, then that value appears twice in the data

Example:

__|________________

3  |   1 1 3 4 4

4  |   2

In this stem and leaf plot, the data values of 31 and 34 would be listed twice.

Data values: 31, 31, 33, 34, 34, 42
