2. The abscissa (horizontal or X-axis) will range from 15-26. Put those numbers at the base (on the abscissa). For each score of a particular value, put an "X" at that point. Once this has been completed, connect the tops of each column of Xs to get your frequency distribution. The abscissa indicates the values of the scores, and the ordinate (vertical or Y-axis) indicates the frequency of the scores.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
