Ok, it seems you are right, but I'm a beginner in R, so maybe you can help me a little bit more.

When I use the hist function, it automatically uses the frequency of the different numbers, so I will get normally 60 bars.

When I use the barplot function, then I have to count the frequency of the numbers. Is there a function who can do this, or should I write a function on my own.

Sorry, I'm sure it is a stupid question, but maybe someone can give me a good reference for answers, because I am a beginner :-)

Thanks to everyone
Mario
