### What is the difference between a frequency histogram and a relative frequency histogram?

Both divide the data into discrete groups or intervals. The
frequency histogram gives the number of times the data occur in the

###### Asked in The Difference Between, Graphs

### What is the difference between bar and histogram?

Bars are for single values or classes with uniform width, and
the height of each bar is the frequency. In a histogram, the
classes are of different width and the heights are proportional to
the frequency density. The frequency, itself, is given by the area
of the "bar" above the class.

-Construct a frequency table
-Draw a horizontal axis and mark off the intervals.Label the
horizontal axis.If the first interval does not start at 0, use a
"break" symbol on the axis.
-Draw a vertical axis and identify a scale for the frequencies.
Label the vertical axis.Often, the vertical axis is
"frequency".
-Draw bars with heights corresponding to the frequency values in
the table.
-Give the graph an appropriate title.
