Histograms

A histogram divides the range of numeric values into bins and displays the number of data values falling within each bin. The width of a bin influences the level of detail:

# Using the hist function to show Old Faithful's eruption times
hist(faithful$eruptions,
breaks = 20,
xlab = "eruption times (min)",
ylab = "count",
main = "Using hist")
# Old Faithful's waiting time to the next eruption using qplot
qplot(x = waiting,
data = faithful,
