A histogram is not appropriate for displaying which of the following types of information?
A histogram is an advanced bar representation of the data on the graphs.
Answer: A histogram is not appropriate for displaying cumulative frequency.
Let's go through the explanation to understand better.
A histogram is the most commonly used graph that is used to depicts the frequency distributions. It although looks very similar to the bar chart, but has a significant difference. It is helpful in data collection as well as an analysis tool.
We can make use of the histogram, when:
- We want to see data distribution.
- When determining whether the outputs of two data are different or not.
- When given data is numerical.
- When we need to communicate the distribution of data to others.
But, as the histogram is useful in many cases, there are certain cases when we cannot make use of the histogram, and need other mediums for the purpose of data calculation and representation. This case is nothing but when we need to represent the cumulative frequency via the chart, we cannot make use of the histogram.
