### Example Question #42 : Statistics & Probability

Mr. Smith wants to know how tall all of his students are, in inches. He asked each of his students to write down their height. This data is displayed in the provided chart. Select the answer that contains the histogram that most accurately displays Mr. Smith's class data.

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

Histograms are similar to bar graphs; however, histograms differ because they can use ranges and the bars must touch (i.e. there are no gaps in the graph).

In order to make a histogram that displays this data, we want to make an x-axis that contains variables that represent the various heights and a y-axis that represents the number of students who who are a particular height. Next, we can place a bar above each number on the x-axis that goes up to the correct number of students that are the particular height. If done correctly, then the histogram should look something like the following:
