show the relative frequency distribution

Frequency distribution refers to a set of frequencies with a particular set of values into which a statistical population is grouped. Relative frequency refers to data presented in a table that demonstrates the relative frequency of multiple non-overlapping classes.

Are you talking about a histogram of the relative frequency distribution.

The relative frequency of a class is the frequency of the class divided by the total number of frequencies of the class and is generally expresses as a percentage.

in form of percent

Not all statisticians would agree that the statement is true.

Relative frequency is a method of calculating the frequency of an event. Percentage frequency is a way of presenting the frequency of an event.

In a frequency distribution table, there are usually five parts/columns (12th grade statistics):class, frequency, mid-point, relative frequency, and cumulative frequency.

These help to distribute the frequency much better than the latter. The noise might not be as loud or boisterous this way.

absolute frequency is a term decribing the total number of trials you did. a relative frequency is the number of measurements in an interval of a frequency distribution. or the ratio of the number of times an event occurs in a series of trials of a chance experiment to the number of trials of the experiment performed. so the difference is one is the total trials, and the other...well it depends on which definition you picked...

Cumulative percentage is another way of expressing frequency distribution. It calculates the percentage of the cumulative frequency within each interval, much as relative frequency distribution calculates the percentage of frequency.

Frequancy Tables only use whole numbers while relative frequency tables use exact percentages or decimals.
