(ii) How many workers earn ₹ 850 and more?

(iii) How many workers earn less than ₹ 850?

**Solution:**

A histogram can be defined as a set of rectangles with bases along with the intervals between class boundaries. Each rectangle bar depicts some sort of data and all the rectangles are adjacent. It is the graphical representation of data where data is grouped into continuous number ranges and each range corresponds to a vertical bar.

The histogram is drawn below:

(i) 830 – 840 group has the maximum number of workers

(ii) 10 workers can earn more than ₹ 850

(iii) 20 workers earn less than ₹ 850
