I need some help answering these questions:
1). Explain when and why a histogram is appropriate for describing the data.
2). Explain when and why a Bar Graph is appropriate for describing the data.
3). What particular elements of the graph do you want the reader to notice when viewing a histogram?
4). What is the overall impression that you expect the reader to have from looking at the graph?
5). What particular elements of the graph do you want the reader to notice when viewing a Bar Graph?
6). What is the overall impression that you expect the reader to have from looking at the Bar Graph?

Solution:
1) Histogram is used to observe (or view) variation in frequency of occurrence of data in it's different intervals.
e.g., in a group of 1000 people, observing number of people having different heights, with minimum 5' and maximum 7', and interval of 2". So intervals will be 5'-5'2", 5'2"-5'4", 5'4"-5'6", ..., 6'8"-6'10", 6'10"-7'0", and on Y axis each interval column will have height equivalent to number of people with the heights in that interval.

2) When a number of objects of same type with different numerical values to be compared, bar chart is utilized. ...

Solution Summary

This solution briefly looks at the differences between bar graph and histograms.

1. Place the following scores in a frequency distribution table. Include columns for proportion (p) and percentage (%) in your table. The scores are: 4, 6, 2, 9, 8, 8, 5, 7, 7, 3, 6, 6, 7, 4, 5, 8, 6, 5
2. Under what circumstances should you use a grouped frequency distribution instead of a regular frequency distribution?

If you created a pie graph what particular "elements" of a Pie Graph do you want the reader to notice? What is the overall impression that you expect the reader to have from looking a pie graph?
If you created a bargraph what particular "elements" of that BarGraph do you want the reader to notice? What is the overall impres

1)
For each of the following, determine the constant c so that f(x) satisfies the conditions of being a p.m.f. for a random variable X, and then depict p.m.f. as a bargraph.
2)
An unbiased four-sided die X has two faces numbered 0 and two faces numbered 2. An unbiased four-sided die Y has its faces numbered 0, 1, 4, and 5.

Obtain the mean and standard deviation for data attached and create a histogram for data frequencies using Microsoft Excel program. The bin range can be left blank.Use the created histogram of data attached and determine how many points are out of control according to the upper control limit and lower control limit.
