## How a histogram is different than a bar chart?

Welcome to MooMooMath where we upload a new

Math video everyday In this video I would like to talk about the

difference between a histogram and a bar graph. A histogram and a bar chart both ways to graph

data. Both have an x and y axis, and both use a

bar to display the data. With a histogram the categories are numerical.

For example, notice on this histogram the x axis is the age of people in the room. The

ages are grouped in a numerical range. In this next example, the histogram is graphing

the score on a test and the number of people who scored in each range.

Also, the bars of a histogram touch A bar graph uses categories such as types

of movies, color of eyes, and the bars do not touch

For example, in this bar graph the categories are grade level and the number of students

in each grade level. Notice that the bars do not touch

In another example, the categories are types of videos and the number of videos in each

type. Again, the bars do not touch

In summary, histograms have bars that touch and use quantities.

A bar graph have bars that don’t touch and use categorical data.

thx

Wow thx first video where it's short and explained a lot of things…watched a 15min video and got nothing out of it so this is a lifesaver

thank you I need help I am in a behavioral science statistics class can you explain standard deviation and variance for population ,sample if you are a great teacher I need to make a b in this class to get my GPA FOR Rutgers in September thank u

thanks a lot 🙂

it is good …but reduce the volume of background music in forthcoming videos

It would be better if the bars on the bar graph example were noticeably separated.

I would also suggest that the numbers at the bottom of the histogram example wouldn't overlap. For example, change the first bar to 0-50, next one to 51-100, etc.

Overall, it is a good first introduction… but I always have a student or two that will pick up on those details that could lead to a misunderstanding and require more help from me to clear up.

How about data such as Customer Satisfaction rated from 1 to 5?

Will that have to be on a bar graph or can it be represented on a histogram? I'm assuming since it is numerical and has an order it can be used on a histogram.

What if it were rated in terms of "Very Poor, Poor, Average, Excellent, Very Excellent"?

Thanks in advance

Histogram = quantitative data Bargraph = quantitative data

Touch what? It is not clear.

this video is just what I needed

this video was bad

Bhaut bhaut sukrya sir Apka

background music is so loud!!!

Thx

Galat hai

Categorical (Bar) vs. Data(Histogram)…. Got it

your background music is too loud. I can't really hear you well

Thanks man that was so Helpful

U DA BEST

Thank u

JK

Thanks for this!
