 Description  
 Histogram:  A way of displaying numeric data using horizontal or vertical bars so that the height or the length of the bars indicates the frequency.
A histogram is a bar graph that shows how many data values fall into a certain interval. The number of data items in an interval is a frequency. The width of the bar represents the interval, while the height indicates the number of data items, or frequency, in that interval.

Histogram gets its name from "Histo" - meaning mast or beam and "gram" - meaning picture.

Example of a histogram:

Number is Range
