    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 - ...
