find your maths course, GCSE mathematics, sylabus A and look under publications and materials, scroll to student support section, two excel files 40 and 35K for download covering prem to div 3 first 5 weeks of games for both english and spanish leagues in oct 2002. Surprised your school didn;t tell you about them.

I start the same cwk tomorrow!

For histograms the frequency of your group is represented by area NOT height. so the height (known as frequency density) is found by dividing frequency by class width.

eg
Height Freq class width Freq Density
105 to 115 05 10 =5/10 = 0.5
115 to 125 12 10 =12/10 = 1.2
125 to 130 34 5 =34/5 = 6.8
130 to 135 38 5 =38/5 = 7.6
135 to 160 40 25 = 40/25 = 1.6

plot frequency density (y axis) vs height (x axis)

Obviously if your class widths are all the same size then the resulting chart looks very similar to a bar chart but Histograms allow for different class widths and bar charts should have gaps between the bars and are for use with discrete data only.
