    Hey,

    I was wondering when do you need to work out the relative frequency and when do you need to work out the frequency density and hence draw their graphs. The SI edexcel book doesn't actually tell you which is rather irksome. Can somebdy help?

    when they ask you to draw a histogram you must find the relative frequency. say you have frequency 50 and the group is 10-14, you do frq/class width
    so 50/5 which is 10. this will give you the height of ur bar (freq density) to check the area of the bar should equal 50 so 10*5 which is 50
    you do relative when they ask u to draw relative frequency histogram

    ps: pls help with my question on interpolation the threads called s1 edexcel calculator
