# University simple research assignment issues /noobie to Rstudio

Hi there, I have encountered an issue while doing my small assignment for my University Stats class.
The whole goal of the assignment is to conduct a small data collection and apply it into a histogram.
Everything was going nice and smoothly until I noticed a mistake in the count for the 1st class:
-the histogram appears to merge the count for 12 pts and 13 pts into 1 count and represents the count for 13 as 4
-with the count() command, the count for 12 pts is equal to 3 and for 13 pts is equal to 1 (combined=4)
I am struggling to solve that issue. I include 2 screenshots, for better visualisation of the problem + the code I used, RstudioIssue1|690x388 and in case i used wrong wording. Here's the code I used for the Histogram:
Version:1.0 StartHTML:0000000107 EndHTML:0000002267 StartFragment:0000000127 EndFragment:0000002249

hist(points.game,

• main="LeBron James points per game stats for NBA season 15/16",
• xlab="points scored",
• border="black",
• col="tomato",
• las=1,
• breaks=40, xlim=c(10,45), ylim=c(0,14), ylab="number of games")

Hi, and welcome!

Please see the FAQ: What's a reproducible example (`reprex`) and how do I do one? Using a reprex, complete with representative data will attract quicker and more answers. And also check the homework policy, please.

Without really having the data, the best advice I can give is an example of how a histogram is supposed to work
