    How do a create a histogram from this data?

    I'm supposed to "graph the distribution by a histogram using 10 thousand barrels as the width of categories (bins).

    The data above is the estimated total amounts of oil recovered from 64 wells in thousands of barrels.

    So, where do I go from here?

    Set up you bins (barrels? It just made me laugh)

    0 - 9.99
    10-19.99
    20-29.99
    30-39.99
    ...
    90-99.99
    ...
    150-159.99

    Put each item in the right bin.

    21.71 goes in 20-29.99
    53.2 goes in 50-59.99
    97.7 goes in 90-99.99
    156.5 goes in 150-159.99
    etc.
