What are you having trouble with?

Can you draw a vertical axis that goes up to 15 that can represent the frequencies?

Can you draw a horizontal axis that has 5 equal lengths marked, which will represent the intervals?

Can you draw the bars?

I am not sure how to graph it? I am going into excel and trying to enter information but can't seem to figure it out. I guess I am lost on how to enter the range from 39-44.9 and frequency of 4

I have worked with graphing before but not sure on how to start especially with histograms. Is there a way that is not difficult to enter information?

Why not just write one number in each cell of your intervals column and make a mental note that it actually represents an interval instead of a single number?
