    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:

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