#### Solution Preview

When looking at data, there are several types of "frequencies" to compute. These are:

1.) Frequency - the number of times that a particular value of data occurs

2.) Relative frequency - frequency/total- a sum of relative frequencies for a given set of data will equal 1.

3.) Cumulative frequency - ...

#### Solution Summary

This solution defines and illustrates what relative and cumulative frequency distributions are.
