Frequency Tables Worksheets

How to Read Frequency Tables - In statistics, we often come across a term called frequency. In general, the term frequency refers to the quantity or amount of something or the number of times an event has occurred. The frequency of the number of any object or the number of occurrences of any event is plotted on a frequency table. A frequency table records the frequency of anything within a class boundary. A class boundary segregates the number of occurrences of certain events according to different categories and classifies every occurrence in their respective categories. Reading a frequency table is a pretty simple task. The quantity of something or the number of occurrences of any event is mostly written in numeric form. For example, if a class has 7 students who have a height lying in the range of 5 to 6 feet, then the class of height 5 to 6 feet will have a frequency of 7. Sometimes, we also draw tally marks to represent the frequency of anything in a frequency table.
