    hi!
    I haven t done these in a while & don t have the answers to these questions,they re biology qs, I have to draw a histogram,can t remember how to get the frequency & how to organise this


    Rep for your help & also for answers that back up other ppl s answers/corrections.
    Thanks

    Frequency density = Frequency divided by class width. After you've found the freq. dens. for each class interval. Label y 'frequency density' then draw the bars. Suppose 11-19 is a class interval, and 16 is the frequency. The bar would go up 2 (16 divided by (19-11)). and it would be very wide (from 11- 19 on the x axis)

    Thanks for the reply
    This is gonna sound really stupid but how do I get the frequency from the table

    The figures that are not bold show the frequencies.

    So for the 1st one I do 30/(79-70)
    or do I divide it by (139-120)
    Sorry I m really clueless.

    Attache the graph for you. Add in labels and I think that's correct

    Can you please check the graph aliakhtar put up please.Thanks

    Method thanks to aliakhtar :thumbsup:
    You'd need to find out frequency density for each one which is basically Frequency/Class width

    The class width of the first one is 120-139 so the width is 19.

    The frequencies for the class 120-139 are : 13,14,17 ( Non-bold)

    So the frequency density for those would be 13/19, 14/19 and 17/19. You'd plot the classes on the x-axis and the frequency density on the y-axis. Under the class 120-139 you would draw three bars in three different colors showing the the three different pressures. You'd make a key for the diastolic pressure each color shows. Make sure the bars are stacked together with no spaces in between.

    Correction : There would be no frequency densities as the last class has no width ( > or something . That's why in my graph I just plotted normal frequencies. Other than that I think my method is correct.

    It is fine. You can't do the last one because, like he said, it is >160 and has no width.
