Histogram Used to represent continuous grouped data Does not have any gaps between bars Areas represent frequency.

Histogram - example Question: The heights of 325 students were measured to the nearest cm (a)Draw a histogram to illustrate the above data. (b) Estimate the number of students under 158 cm in height Answer (a): find class boundaries label horizontal axis using continuous scale find class widths find class frequency densities label vertical axis for frequency densities draw bars using class boundaries and frequency densities
