## Cumulative Frequency Curve

The cumulative frequency curve is also called the OGIVE. It is the graph of the cumulative frequency against the upper class boundary.

EVALUATION

The table shows the masses of a various quantities of maize sold by a farmer during the year 1985.

• Draw a cumulative frequency table. (b) Using a scale of 2cm to 4 kg on the x – axis and 2cm to 20units on the y – axis, draw the cumulative frequency curve.

GENERAL EVALUATION

Given the frequency distribution below. Draw a histogram and a cumulative frequency curve.

New General Mathematics SSS2, page164, exercise 14b.
