2 VocabularyHistogram- a bar graph that shows the frequency of data within equal intervals. There is no space between the bars in a histogram.
3 Additional Example 1A: Analyzing Histograms The histogram shows the results of a survey asking people the number of hours they sleep per night. Use the histogram to answer each question.A. How many people sleep less than 9 hous per night?Add the number of students in the 3-5 and 6-8 intervals.= 7878 people sleep less than 9 hous per night.
4 Additional Example 1B: Analyzing Histograms B. What is the approximate median number of hours people sleep per night?Since 100 people were surveyed, the median is the mean of the 50th and 51st persons’ hours.IntervalFrequencyRank(by weight)3-5251-256-85326-789-111779-9512-14596-100Determine the interval of the 50th and 51st people.The 50th and 51st persons’ hours are in the middle of the 6-8 interval. So, a good estimated is 7 hours.
5 Check It Out: Example 1The histogram shows the results of a local 10K race. Use the histogram to answer each question.
6 Check It Out: Example 1 Continued A. How many runners completed the race in less than 50 minutes?B. What is the approximate median time people ran the race?
7 Additional Example 2: Making a Histogram The table below shows the number of hours students watch TV in one week. Make a histogram of the data.Step 1: Make a frequency table of the data. Be sure to use equal intervals.6 ///7 //// ////8 ///9 ////1 //2 ////3 //// ////4 //// /5 //// ///Number of Hours of TVFrequencyNumber of Hours of TV1–3154–6177–917
8 Additional Example 2 Continued Step 2: Choose an appropriate scale and interval for the vertical axis. The greatest value on the scale should be at least as great as the greatest frequency.201612841–3FrequencyNumber of Hours of TV154–6177–9
9 Additional Example 2 Continued Step 3: Draw a bar graph for each interval. The height of the bar is the frequency for that interval. Bars must touch but not overlap.201612841–3FrequencyNumber of Hours of TV154–6177–9Because the intervals are equal, all of the bars should have the same width.Caution!
10 Additional Example 2 Continued Step 4: Label the axes and give the graph a title.Hours of Television Watched201612841–3FrequencyNumber of Hours of TV154–6177–9Frequency1–34–67–9Hours
