# How do you draw a comparative frequency polygon?

## How do you draw a comparative frequency polygon?

To draw frequency polygons, first we need to draw histogram and then follow the below steps:

- Step 1- Choose the class interval and mark the values on the horizontal axes.
- Step 2- Mark the mid value of each interval on the horizontal axes.
- Step 3- Mark the frequency of the class on the vertical axes.

## How do you analyze frequency polygons?

Draw the Y-axis to indicate the frequency of each class. Place a point in the middle of each class interval at the height corresponding to its frequency. Finally, connect the points. You should include one class interval below the lowest value in your data and one above the highest value.

**How can we use frequency polygons to compare distributions?**

Frequency polygons are useful for comparing distributions. This is achieved by overlaying the frequency polygons drawn for different data sets.

**How do I create a frequency distribution chart in Excel?**

Frequency Distribution

- First, insert a pivot table.
- Click any cell inside the Sum of Amount column.
- Choose Count and click OK.
- Next, click any cell inside the column with Row Labels.
- Enter 1 for Starting at, 10000 for Ending at, and 1000 for By.
- Result:
- To easily compare these numbers, create a pivot chart.

### How do you make a frequency polygon and histogram in Excel?

To create the frequency polygon:

- Right-click on the chart, then click on Select Data.
- Click on Add.
- For the Series Values, select the same range that you selected for histogram.
- Click OK, then click OK again.
- Right-click a bar of the second histogram, then click on Change Series Chart Type.

### Is frequency polygon a statistical diagram?

The frequency polygon happens to be a special line graph whose use takes place in statistics. One can draw these graphs either separately or combined.

**How do you read a cumulative frequency polygon?**

Step 1: Prepare the cumulative frequency distribution table. Step 2: Mark the actual upper limits of the class intervals on the x-axis. Step 3: Mark the respective cumulative frequencies on the y-axis. Step 4: Plot the points representing the upper limit of the class interval with their respective cumulative frequency.

**What type of data does a frequency polygon show?**

A frequency polygon is a visual representation of a distribution. The visualization tool is used to understand the shape of a distribution. Essentially, the frequency polygon indicates the number of occurrences for each distinct class in the dataset.

## What is the difference between histogram and frequency polygon?

A frequency polygon is a graph constructed by using lines to join the midpoints of each interval, or bin. A histogram is a graph that illustrates the relative frequency or probability density of a single variable.
