### Aim: How do we construct a cumulative frequency table/histogram?

To create a Cumulative Frequency Table we must:
• Construct a Frequency table (intervals)
• Extend the Table to include a cumulative frequency column
• The C. Freq. Column is calculated by starting from the bottom and adding each Freq. to the C. Frequency recorded on the previous row.

To create a Cumulative Frequency Histogram:
• Construct a Cumulative Frequency table
• Draw/Label the Horizontal Axis (intervals)
• Draw/Label the Vertical Axis “Cumulative Frequency”
• Graph the Bars (No Gaps)
• Last bar should contain the total frequency
• Title the Graph …..The words

“cumulative frequency” should appear in the

title.

Horizontal axis (left to right)
• Label the horizontal axis with the appropriate intervals.
• Name the axis ……Test scores
• If the Intervals do not begin at 0 use a “break” symbol on the axis

51-60 51-70 51-80 51-90 51-100

Test Scores (Intervals)

Vertical Axis (up and down)
• Begin at zero
• Number the Vertical Axis.
• Label the axis “Cumulative Frequency”
