# Thread: Help with Frequency Distribution?

1. ## Help with Frequency Distribution?

So, I've been absent for the last couple of days from school and I got my homework and I don't understand it! Could you point me in the right direction?

Here's an example problem:

"The Following data represent the mass measured (in gram) of a certain mineral in a geology laboratory:

$\displaystyle \begin{matrix} 33.8 & 34.7 & 35.6 & 36.7 & 38.8 & 39.5\\ 40.6 & 41.4 & 42.6 & 42.8 & 42.8 & 43.7\\ 44.9 & 46.4 & 47.3 & 48.3 & 49.7 & 50.1\\ 50.6 & 51.3 & 52.7 & 54.2 & 55.2 & 55.8\\ 56.9 & 58.1 & 59.0 & 60.7 & 61.6 & 62.4 \end{matrix}$

A. Prepare a frequency distribution
B. Create: a histogram, a polygon of frequency and an ogive

Is a frequency distribution something like a table where I can show something like

mass ===> total
30 - 39.9 ===> 6

Thanks!

Yep!
