- Construct a frequency distribution table based on the data set above with the following information:

1) class (set class width as 4 and lower limits of the classes as multiples of 4)

2) frequency

3) relative frequency

4) cumulative frequency

- From the frequency distribution table in the previous part, construct a histogram. Use class midpoints on $x$-axis and frequency on $y$-axis.

- Construct a frequency distribution table based on the data set above with the following information:
**Interpreting Histograms**

Answer the questions based on the histogram below.

- The histogram below shows the average daily cholesterol intake of 40 people.

- What will change in the histogram if class midpoints are used on $x$-axis?
- What will change in the histogram if relative frequency is used on $y$-axis?
- What will change in the histogram if cumulative frequency is used on $y$-axis?
- What kind of interpretations can be made from the cumulative frequency histogram?
