following set of problems involves the use of the bin histogram. A histogram is

a graphical plot that shows the number of members of an ensemble of data in

various categories. For example, the histogram of Figure 5.18 shows the total

number of occurrences of each letter of the alphabet in the text of this

problem up to and including the end of this sentence. Similarly, the histogram

of Figure 5.19 shows the distribution of end-of-semester grades in a particular

engineering class. Engineers often use histograms to display data and sort

information.
