A statistical data can be expressed by diagram, chart, etc., in order to make the data grasped immediately. In this chapter, students will be studying only about histograms, frequency polygon and Ogive (cumulative frequency curve). This chapter consists of only one exercise, solutions which can be found at Selina Solutions for Class 10 Mathematics. This is a vital resource for students in order to prepare for their exams. It is prepared by experienced faculty at BYJUâ€™S, keeping in mind the latest ICSE guidelines. Additionally, this resource is available free of cost and can be accessed at any time. Further, the Selina Solutions for Class 10 Mathematics Chapter 23 Graphical Representation (Histograms and Ogives) are available in a PDF, provided in the link below.
