We have the data set

1) Transform it into an ordered data set:

2) The data points range from

3) Split this data range into convenient equal intervals: for example, we can use 6 intervals with the interval step of 5:

- interval 1: from
#12# to#16# - interval 2: from
#17# to#21# - interval 3: from
#22# to#26# - interval 4: from
#27# to#31# - interval 5: from
#32# to#36# - interval 6: from
#37# to#41#

4) Build the frequency table for the intervals 1-6:

- Number of data points within interval 1:
#2# - Number of data points within interval 2:
#1# - Number of data points within interval 3:
#0# - Number of data points within interval 4:
#1# - Number of data points within interval 5:
#3# - Number of data points within interval 6:
#4#

5) Get the histogram from the frequency table by using a column chart type. Data values will be represented on the x-axis and the frequencies on the y-axis.
