Example

 

 


Kirstie timed how long it took her to cycle to the paper shop every day for a month. The results are in the bar chart.

 

What was her shortest time for any journey? __ mins

(On how many occasions did she take this time)

 

Frequency is a measure of how often something happens.  So the height of each bar tells you how often Kirtie took that amount of time to complete the journey.

 

 

The first bar is the one that shows journeys that took only 8 minutes.

 

So 8 minutes was the shortest time.

She took this amount of time (8 minutes) on just 1 occasion (height of bar)
