"A histogram represents quantitative data while bar charts visualize categories or qualitative variables. For instance, you can use histograms to visualize the different prices for top mobile phones available in a specific country. Numeral data used in histograms can be displayed in a continuous line or axis. On the other hand, you use a bar chart to dig deeper and showcase the smart phone sales per brand or manufacturer.
Formatting bar charts and histograms is also different. With histograms, the bars should have equal widths and be close to each other. While on bar charts, you can leave a space between each bar to indicate different categories.
