# How do you calculate the relative frequency?

Remember, you count frequencies. To find the relative frequency, divide the frequency by the total number of data values. To find the cumulative relative frequency, add all of the previous relative frequencies to the relative frequency for the current row.

Keeping this in consideration, what is the relative frequency distribution?

A frequency distribution shows the number of elements in a data set that belong to each class. In a relative frequency distribution, the value assigned to each class is the proportion of the total data set that belongs in the class. For the supermarket example, the total number of observations is 200.

What is the relative frequency?

Relative Frequency. How often something happens divided by all outcomes. Example: Your team has won 9 games from a total of 12 games played: the Frequency of winning is 9. the Relative Frequency of winning is 9/12 = 75%

What is a frequency distribution in statistics?

Frequency distribution. Each entry in the table contains the frequency or count of the occurrences of values within a particular group or interval, and in this way, the table summarizes the distribution of values in the sample.
