# Frequency Distribution Formula

A frequency distribution is the representation of data, either in a graphical or tabular format, to displays the number of observation within a given integral.

In Statistics, a frequency distribution is a table that displays the number of outcomes of a sample. Each entry occurring in the table contains the count or frequency of occurrence of the values within a group.

### Solved Examples

Example: A survey was taken in Maple Avenue. In each of 20 homes, people were asked how many cars were registered to their households.The results were recorded as follows:

3, 1, 4, 0, 2, 1, 5, 2, 1, 5, 4, 2, 3, 2, 0, 2, 1, 0, 3, 2.

Present this data in Frequency Distribution Table.

Also find maximum number of cars registered by household.

Solution: Divide the number of cars (x) into intervals, and then count the number of results in each interval (frequency).

Thus creating the frequency Distribution Table

 Number of Cars Frequency 0 3 1 4 2 6 3 3 4 2 5 2

Thus, from the table it is clear that the 6 household has 2 cars.
