    Hi there,

    It is difficult to answer your question because you have not explained the context. It seems as though you are doing a project to compare newspaper articles. In order to produce a chart, such as a histogram, you need a lot more data. It seems as though, for each newspaper you have only one picture and so only a single item of data .

    If you measure the area of about 50 pictures from the sun, you can then group that data and produce a histogram. There are many online sources of help that explain bar charts and histograms, for example, the Histograms booklet at:

    Jess, you simply do not have enough data to produce a viable histogram. You have two sets of data, so maybe a pie chart would be better.

    Pie Chart

    Yeah, go for a Pie Chart. You can't really draw a histogram with this information.
