    Histogram word problem

    True or False

    The area of a histogram associated with a probability distribution is a number between 0 and 1. Explain your answer.


    I was thinking it might be false since it doesn't refer to it as a "standard normal distribution" curve.

    A histogram would not have a curve as we only use histograms for discrete values.

    The answer is then true.
