- Another new chart type in Excel 2016…is called a histogram.…Now, you could've created this in prior versions…using the frequency function.…You would've needed to have set up what's called a bin range…to represent some breakpoints…to show how many salaries we have between,…for example, between 20 and 40,000,…40 and 60,000, something like that.…We don't have to do any of that work here.…For reference, I have put in two functions…in cells D1 and E1,…showing us the maximum value found in column B…and the minimum value.…
So all the salaries range between those two numbers.…So selecting column B only then going to the Insert tab,…the histogram option is the middle of the nine buttons…that we see here in the Charts group right there, Histogram,…and immediately we see a histogram…and the description, "Use this chart type to show…"the distribution of data grouped into bins."…We'll see that term in a minute.…I'm going to make this a bit wider.…We see the numbers at the bottom.…They're not exactly numbers that we're, let's say,…
