Frequency is how often something occurs.

Examples

- Sunday Afternoon
- Monday Morning
- Monday Afternoon

The frequency was 1 on Sunday, 2 on Monday and 3 for the whole week.

## Definition of Frequency Distribution

We can make a Frequency Distribution table by counting frequencies.

Example: Eat

The amount of Apple that John has eaten every day in 15 days.

**3, 2, 4, 3, 4, 2, 3, 2, 1, 5, 1, 3, 3, 2, 1**

Put the numbers in order, then added up:

- how often 1 occurs (3 times),
- how often 2 occurs (4 times),
- etc,

and wrote them down as a Frequency Distribution table.

Amount | Frequency |

1 | 3 |

2 | 4 |

3 | 5 |

4 | 2 |

5 | 1 |

From the table we can see interesting things such as

- Eating 3 apples happens most often
- only once did he eat 5 apples

So, Frequency Distribution means: values and their frequency (how often each value occurs).
