# What is Frequency Distribution in Statistics?

A frequency distribution is represented in many different ways like a table or a graph.

## Answer: Frequency distribution in statistics is a graph or a set of data that is organized to show the frequency of occurrence of each outcome of any event which is repeated a number of times.

The frequency distribution is the distribution of the frequency of a particular outcome of an event.

For example, if we roll a dice 10 times and get 4 times number 2, 3 times number five and twice number 6 and once number 3

Then the frequency distribution of the outcomes would be :

Number 1, frequency = 0

Number 2, frequency = 4

Number 3, frequency = 1

Number 4, frequency = 0

Number 5, frequency = 3

Number 6, frequency = 2

This can be represented in the table shown below

Number on the Die | Frequency |

1 | 0 |

2 | 4 |

3 | 1 |

4 | 0 |

5 | 3 |

6 | 2 |

### Thus, Frequency distribution in statistics is a graph or a set of data that is organized to show the frequency of occurrence of each outcome of any event which can be repeated a number of times.
