histogram Display and interpret data in a histogram.
Standard 7SDAP1.1 Know various forms of display for data sets, including stem-and-leaf plot or box- and-whisker plot; use the forms to display a single set of data or to compare two sets of data.
Forever you were taught that this was called a “Bar Graph”. Forget about it! From this point on they are to be called a “Histogram”
Construct a Histogram FOOD The list below shows the number of grams of caffeine in certain types of tea. Use intervals 1–20, 21–40, 41–60, 61– 80, and 81–100 to make a frequency table. Then construct a histogram.
Construct a Histogram Place a tally mark for each value in the appropriate interval. Use intervals 1–20, 21–40, 41–60, 61–80, and 81–100 to make a frequency table. Then add up the tally marks to find the frequency for each interval.
Step 1Draw and label a horizontal and vertical axis. Step 2Show the intervals from the frequency table on the horizontal axis. To construct a histogram, follow these steps: Include a title.
Construct a Histogram Answer: Step 3For each caffeine interval, draw a bar whose height is given by the frequency.
Analyze and Interpret Data WEATHER How many months had 6 or more days of rain? Three months had 6 to 7 days of rain, and one month had 8 to 9 days of rain. Answer: Therefore, or 4 months had 6 or more days of rain.
Analyze and Interpret Data WEATHER How many months had exactly 2 days of rain? Answer: This cannot be determined from the data presented in this graph. The histogram indicates that there were 3 months that had 2 or 3 days of rain, but it is impossible to tell how many months had exactly 2 days of rain.
