### Chap 16 Data Handling: Histograms - How does it look like?

Here are 3 examples of HISTOGRAMS

Describe the Histogram - How does it look like?

1. They are similar to bar graphs, but are together. Also, it is used for representing frequencies of things that are countable and are in ascending order with equal intervals in between the numbers

2. They contain bars but they have no gaps between each bars. The horizontal axis also contain numerical values of the subject of the label. All the bars are representing the same thing .

3. 1. They are like bar graphs, with bars representing the numerical values.
2. They are drawn on a grid
3. There is no gap between the bars

4. Histograms look like bar graphs but they have grid lines in the background. There is also a line shaped like a 'Z' at the start of the horizontal axis. The histogram also have the horizontal and vertical axis with numbers and labels beside it. It also has a title. The bars do not have gaps in between them like bar graphs do.

5. Histograms look similar to bar graphs and are used to compare frequencies between similar items but different quantities.

6. Histogram look similar to bar graphs and look like stairs.

7. Histograms look similar to bar graphs.
The title is usually the label for the horizontal axis whereas the vertical axis's label will be "frequency".
There are no gaps between the columns so that it is easier to compare them.

8. They are similar to bar graphs but they do no have gaps in between each column.

9. Histogram are similar to bar graphs but there is no gaps in between each bar. Both histogram and bar graph are used for comparison.

11. The bars in the Histograms have no gaps in between them and have this square grid behind them.The vertical axis is also always the Frequency.

12. There are no gaps in between the graph and it both axis have an arrow at the end of it.If I am not wrong if there is an average in the title there will be a special pattern at the start of the horizontal axis

13. Each bar graph is also not always represented individually and labeled.

14. They look like Bar Graphs, but the vertical axis shows the frequency of the objects, in this way it bears a similarity to the pictogram. As the icon represents the object and the quantity of the icon is similar to the frequency.

Histogram looks similar to bar graphs and on the vertical axis, it shows the number of times/ frequency of the event/ object which is shown on the horizontal axis.

16. They looked like bar graphs but there is no spacing between the bars. I can see that they are used to represent the frequency of something. There are also arrows in the axises.

17. They look similiar to bargraphs, they have arrows at the end of the axises, there is a 'zig~zag thingy' at the start of the horizontal axis and lastly, the vertical axis is always labeled as FREQUENCY~~ :D

BTWFYI I'm Ishani who has been HIGH since april fool's~~~ :DDDD

18. There will be something called frequency at the vertical axis and they look like bar graphs but have no gap.

19. 1. Histograms use grid lines.
2. Histograms compare the no. of "things" with the frequency of them.
3. When the histogram is recorded in the average, there will be a "Z" line in the horizontal axis.

The histogram shows data in a similar way to bar graphs, but the vertical axis has to show the frequency of the thing that you are collecting about. Also, the horizontal axis can have zig-zag pattern at the start.

21. Histograms look like bar graphs with the exception of gaps between each bar.
The vertical axis is usually labelled as "frequency".
Histograms are usually used to compare similar data with different amount.

22. add on~ the bars are coloured??

23. On the vertical axis of all three histograms, the numerical value represents the frequency of the subject of the histogram .

24. Histograms look like bar graphs but there is no gaps between each bar. The histogram shows the frequencies while the bar graph doesn't. There are on grids.

25. Histograms have an arrow head of the horizontal line as it shows a part of the whole graph.
There is no gaps between each column of the graph.
Both axis are numbers instead of types for comparison.
There are also equal intervals which is the same as bar graphs.

26. They look like bar graphs but all the bars are joined together. The vertical axis represents the frequency and the horizontal axis all represent the same thing. If there is a inverted 'Z' shape on the horizontal line between the bars and the vertical axis, the numbers on the horizontal line are usually placed on the side line of the bars.

27. Histograms are like bar graphs but without any gap in between them
Some of them have a "z"shaped line at the start
They are drawn on a grid

28. Histograms look like bar graphs but there is no gaps between each bar. The histogram shows the frequencies while the bar graph doesn't. There are on grids. The vertical axis must be labelled as a frequency.
