The table below shows the number of hours students watch TV in one week Make a histogram of all the data.IIII IIII . Number of hours of TV 1 2 II IIII 6 7 III IIII .I IIII .III 8 9 III IIII .IIII 3 4 5 IIII .

III 1-3 4-6 7-9 15 17 16 .IIII IIII .IIII 8 III IIII . Be sure to use equal intervals Step 1 Number of Frequency hours of TV 1 2 3 4 5 Number of hours of TV II 6 III IIII 7 IIII .I 9 IIII IIII . Make a frequency table of the data.

Step 2  Choose an appropriate scale and interval for the vertical axis. 20 Number of Frequency hours of TV 16 12 8 4 0 1-3 4-6 7-9 1-3 4-6 7-9 15 17 16 . The greatest value on the scale should be at least as great as the greatest frequency.

Step 3  Number of students  Draw a bar for each interval. Bars must touch but not overlap. Label the axes and give the graph title Hours of Television Watched 20 16 12 8 4 0 1-3 4-6 7-9 Hours Number of hours of TV Frequency 1-3 4-6 7-9 15 17 16 . The height of the bar is the frequency for that interval.

Hours of Television Watched Number of students 20 16 12 8 4 0 1-3 4-6 7-9 Hours .
