Hi guys, I just found out that an area of the bar of a histogram isn't equal to frequency, only proportional to it,

I don't get this guys!! All the time I've used it as equals and it seems to work

Thanks

very long and almost impossible to explain via messages.
To put your mind at rest this concept has only come once in an EDEXCEL S1 exam since 2001, so I would not worry if I was you.

I have attached 2 questions and fully worked answers on PDF.
You will need to download the PDF, open on a standard computer screen or laptop and enlarge it to see the solution
