Hello @IlgarZarbaliyev,

Thank you for providing the solution for the workout. I noticed however, that the dataset you provided for the workout is different from the dataset you used for your solution. The values of the Salary, € are different, so my chart is different from your chart solution.
Could you kindly confirm this?
Thank you.

@IlgarZarbaliyev - Please find my submission here.

To insert a histogram chart in your worksheet follow the below steps:

Select your data → Go to Insert tab → Insert Statistic Chart (icon look like histogram) → Histogram → your histogram chart is ready

But this chart doesn’t shows us the desired output that we want. To modify the chart please follow these steps:
right-click on the chart, select “Format Chart Area,” and a window pane will appear on the right side. From the dropdown menu labeled “Chart Options,” choose “Horizontal Axis.”

Under Axis Options (header) set.

  1. Bin Width : 1000
  2. Overflow bin : 10000
  3. Underflow bin : 3500
