We know that, the areas of the rectangles are proportional to the frequencies in a histogram.
Here, the widths to the rectangles are varying, so we need to make certain modifications in the lengths of the rectangles, so that the areas are again proportional to the frequencies :
1. Select a class interval with the minimum class size. The minium class size is 1.
2. The lengths of the rectangles are then modified to be proportionate to the class size 1.
