I am stuck on this question.. I need to draw a histogram but don't know how! I need urgent help please.. Here is the table:

Area (A cm²) Frequency

0 < A ? 10 38
10 < A ? 25 36
25 < A ? 40 30
40 < A ? 60 46

I don't know how to draw the histogram because on this small grid i am given (on this past paper), it isn't big enough to have each square represent 2, which i think is the highest common factor..

Can anyone help? With a rough histogram..?

Thanks

2. Hello, Danielisew!

I need to draw a histogram.

$\displaystyle \begin{array}{cc}\text{Area (cm}^2) & \text{Frequency}\\ 0 < A < 10 & 38 \\ 10 < A < 25 & 36 \\ 25 < A < 40 & 30 \\ 40 < A < 60 & 46\end{array}$

You could cut a "slice" out of the histogram.
Code:
        |
46 +                    *------*
|                    |      |
|                    |      |
38 *------*             |      |
|      |             |      |
36 +      *------*      |      |
|      |      |      |      |
|      |      |      |      |
30 +      |      *------*      |
|      |      |      |      |
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~~ ~ ~ ~ ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
|      |      |      |      |
0 +------+------+------+------+
0     10     25     40     60`

This is common practice when all the data is,
. . for example, between 100 and 110.
