I've occasionally seen "cumulative frequency" shortened to the

word "cume".

### How do you make a cumulative frequency table?

Given a frequency table,
the first cumulative frequency is the same as the first
frequency;
the second cumulative frequency is the sum of the first
cumulative frequency and the second [ordinary]
frequency;
the third cumulative frequency is the sum of the second
cumulative frequency and the third [ordinary] frequency;
and so on.
An alternative definition is that the cumulative frequency for
any value is the sum of all the frequencies less than or equal to
that value.

### What is a cumulative frequency distribution?

According to Anderson, Sweeney Williams book Essential of
Statistics For Business and Economics, 4e Edition, 2006 p. 34
cumulative frequency distribution is "a variation of the frequency
distribution that provides another tabular summary of quantitative
data."
In simple terms, the cumulative frequency distribution is the
sum of the frequencies of all points or outcomes below and
including the current point.

### What is the relationship between relative frequency and cumulative frequency?

frequency plot - number of counts relative frequency - number of
counts/ total counts cumulative frequency - number of counts that
are cumulatively summed cumulative relative frequency that are
cumulatively summed. Examples: Let y = accidents per day for one
week, and x = days of the week (1 to 7) y = (0, 0, 1, 2, 1, 5,1)
for X = 1, 2, ... 7 frequency counts y = (0,0, 0.1,0.2,0.1, 0.5,
0.1) relative frequency y = (0,0,1,3,4,9,10) = cumulative frequency
y = (0, 0, 0.1,0.3,0,0.4,0.9,1) cumulative relative frequency

### Definition of ogive diagram?

An ogive is a type of graph that is used to represent the
cumulative frequencies for the classes in a frequency distribution.
This type of graph can also be known as a cumulative frequency
graph. The cumulative frequency is the sum of the frequencies
accumulated up to the upper boundary of a class in the
distribution.
