Difference between boxplot and histogram

What is a histogram:

A histogram is a form of bar chart that shows the frequency of a data collection visually. A histogram depicts the frequency, or raw count, on the Y-axis (vertical) and the variable being evaluated on the X-axis, identical to a bar chart (horizontal).

What Is a Box Plot?

A box plot often called a box-and-whisker plot, is a graph that graphically displays the five most important qualitative values given a collection of data. These numbers include the lowest, first quartile, median, third quartile, and maximum values.

Comparing and contrasting histograms and box plots:

Although histograms and box plots are both classified as chart aids, they are two completely distinct sorts of graphs. Both charts successfully reflect separate data sets; yet, in some cases, one chart may be preferable to the other in terms of recognizing data variances.
