Maths I

Graphs, charts and tables


In order to draw a histogram, we need a frequency table. You may have to construct one in an exam, or it may be given to you. We record the frequency as shown below.

A bar graph, comparing marks along the x axis with their frequency up the y axis. Mark 1 has a frequency of 5, mark 2 has 10, mark 3 has 10, mark 4 has 15, mark 5 has zero, mark 6 has 10.


Bar graph.
