X f
7 1
6 1
5 3
4 6
3 4
2 1

To determine

To construct: The frequency distribution histogram and a frequency distribution polygon.


Given info:

The frequency distribution table is,

X f
5 4
4 6
3 3
2 1
1 1


Software procedure:

Construct the frequency distribution histogram:

Use the SPSS software to construct the frequency histogram for the frequency distribution table with the help of following instructions:

  • Enter all the scores in one column of the data editor, probably VAR0OOOI.
  • Click Analyze on the tool bar, select Descriptive Statistics, and click on Frequencies.
