    There is 6 integere values for x in the range of 10-15 which means 2cm for the width of the bar representing this range, and there is 3 integer values in the range of 16-18, which is half of the 6 values.
    What do you think about the with of the bar representing this range?
    Similarly to the frequencies.
    5 cm height represents 15, then 5/15=1/3 cm represents frequency 1.
    How many cm represents frequency 9 (9 times 1)?

    Ahh right so the width must be half the width of the range 10-15 so is 1cm?

    this doesn't make sense to me? The mark scheme answer is 6cm?
