I need help, please A medical research team studied the ages of 34 patients who had strokes caused by stress. The frequency distribution below summarizes the results. When trying to understand the stroke data, what would be the advantage of looking at a histogram instead of this frequency distribution? age 25-29 30-34 35-39 40-44 45-49 50-54 55-59 60-64 frequency 3 3 6 4 5 3 5 5

A histogram simply represents that same data set but in a visual way (using rectangular bars). Quickly looking at the visual graph will then tell you where most of the data is grouped around which will give you a sense of the mean and mode. Keep in mind that this will be an approximation and shouldn't replace actually calculating the mean and mode.
