## converting a list of value into a list of absolute /relative frequencies

### converting a list of value into a list of absolute /relative frequencies

Hi,
I have to convert a list of value into a list of absolute /relative frequencies
(I'm not sure if "frenquencies" is the proper transalation of the german word "Hfigkeiten")

The problem seems to be the "Weight" - structure:
"Weight(a..b,k)" is transformed to "a..b" only if k = 1

See what I mean:

given data:

data := [176, 172, 180, 176, 174, 180, 176, 170, 172, 174, 172, 180,

182, 170, 177, 166, 167, 174, 181, 181, 165, 169, 170, 179,

173, 172]

classes := [165 .. 166, 166 .. 167, 167 .. 168, 168 .. 169,

169 .. 170, 170 .. 171, 171 .. 172, 172 .. 173, 173 .. 174,

174 .. 175, 175 .. 176, 176 .. 177, 177 .. 178, 178 .. 179,

179 .. 180, 180 .. 181, 181 .. 182, 182 .. 183]

data2 := [Weight(171 .. 172, 0), Weight(172 .. 173, 4), 173 .. 174,

Weight(174 .. 175, 3), Weight(175 .. 176, 0),

Weight(176 .. 177, 3), 177 .. 178, Weight(178 .. 179, 0),

179 .. 180, Weight(180 .. 181, 3), 165 .. 166,

Weight(181 .. 182, 2), 166 .. 167, 182 .. 183, 167 .. 168,

Weight(168 .. 169, 0), 169 .. 170, Weight(170 .. 171, 3)]

absolute frequencies:

H := [[171, 0], [172, 4], [173, 174], [174, 3], [175, 0], [176, 3],

[177, 178], [178, 0], [179, 180], [180, 3], [165, 166],

[181, 2], [166, 167], [182, 183], [167, 168], [168, 0],

[169, 170], [170, 3]]
---------------- end of maple output -------------------------------------------------------

As you can see, the absolute frequency is wrong in the case of "k = 1".

How can I solve that?

Thanks
Robert

For example, you can do that as follows,

H := [[178, 0], [165, 1], [179, 1], [166, 1], [167, 1], [168, 0],

[180, 3], [169, 1], [181, 2], [170, 3], [182, 1], [171, 0],

[172, 4], [173, 1], [174, 3], [175, 0], [176, 3], [177, 1]]
