I create a Histogram (from Graphics`Graphics`Histogram) of frequencies of a data set as distributed into 20 categories of equal width. What HistogramScale or other option do I specify, and with what value, so that the tick labels on the vertical axis show the percentage represented by each group? Please try to tell me in plain language: I cannot understand the docs for Histogram in the HelpBrowser. -- Murray Eisenberg murray at math.umass.edu Mathematics & Statistics Dept.
