it's a kind of display of a given data

Yes. It doesn't make sense to have a frequency distribution WITHOUT the categories being mutually exclusive. For example, show a chart of the distribution of heights of children in a school. A given child is one specific height and so his contribution to the chart is in just one category. An example of where it doesn't make sense: percentage of shirts seen containing each color. You might have a total well over 100% since shirts can contain several colors, and so the colors are not mutually exclusive since a given shirt can be in two color categories. The colors are not 'exclusive' because blue does not exclude white.

This will purely depend on the question, if you get a frequency chart, (containing only the frequency and how often this was brought, take, etc depending on the question,) add up the frequency one by one and you will have the cumulative frequency. You then (depending on the question) make a chart or a box-plot and follow the question (i.e what if the correlation shown? this would depended on the trend of the data.)

A frequency table is like a tally chart used to record data. They have their subject and the choices to do from. On the other side they have how many voted or chose that answer.

A bar chart is a graph in the form of boxes of different heights, with each box representing a different category of data, and each height representing a frequency.

Frequency density refers to the number of data points within a certain interval or range in a dataset. It is calculated by dividing the frequency of data points in a particular interval by the width of that interval. This measure helps to visualize and compare the distribution of data in a histogram or frequency distribution chart.

Usually the intervals in a frequency chart should be equal.

A frequency diagram shows the distribution of a dataset through a line graph displaying the frequency of each value, while a bar chart represents data using bars of different heights to compare values within different categories. In a frequency diagram, the x-axis represents the variable being measured, while in a bar chart, the x-axis typically represents different categories.

Usually it is the horizontal ray... it can be called whatever it is representing.

The pieces of a pie chart represent the parts of a whole, as does relative frequency. The total of the entire pie chart should be 100% or 360 degrees. The sum of the relative frequencies should also equal 100%.
