What is the purpose of developing a frequency distribution? What is the relationship between the relative frequency and the cumulative frequency? Could a frequency distribution contain qualitative data? Why? In thinking about frequency distribution which, shows various data that is divided into different classes within a business. It also divides the occurrences in each of the specific classes. These frequency distributions are used in quantitative, and qualitative data analysis within any type of business. Many of the graphs, histograms, pie charts, and bar charts can be used within the frequency distribution to keep track of how well any product or service is doing within the business. The relationship between the relative and cumulative frequency is that the relative frequency counts the total number of counts on a certain product or service. While the cumulative frequency sums up the number of counts on the product or service provided. In my opinion this would be a good tool to use because of the data that it would provide for any business. Especially to see how well a product or service is doing within that business. It is also used to see how many times a certain event would happen over the course of a certain period of time. If the data that has been collected over that period of time is quantitative then the data will be used within the frequency distribution.
