st: RE: Including kdensity graph into a histogram with frequencies
Given frequencies in bins of given width, the comparable
frequency density is, I think,
sample size * probability density * bin width
So, you should specify bin width when doing the histogram
and superimpose an equivalent curve generated by -kdensity-
or one of its Ben Jann clones.
Checking especially welcome.
