HistogramIt is graphical representation of frequency distribution in the form of rectangles with class intervals as bases and the corresponding frequencies as heights, there being no gap between any two successive rectangles.
In drawing a histogram of a given frequency distribution, we take the following steps:
Step 1: If the frequency table is in the inclusive form, we first convert it into an exclusive form and make it a continuous interval.
Step 2: Taking a suitable scale, we represent class limits along x axis.
Step 3: Taking a suitable scale, we represent frequency along y axis.
Step 4: We construct rectangles with bases along x axis and heights along y axis.
Step 5: Area of the rectangles so constructed should be proportional to the frequencies.
