Anyone got any ideas on how a histogram of cost of transactions would be useful to a shop owner?
It was quite evenly distributed at a glace, until it got close to the highest values.

I guess trying to find a way of identifying smaller transactions and making them larger somehow?

times = transactions[“Transaction Time”].values

in above code i have selected ‘Transaction Time’ from transaction dataframe. Then what is the need of ‘.values’ . I am confused. please someone tell me.

.values convert the data elements of the selected Column in an array or list of elements.

I would assume that this could be used to identify the most common customer’s buying power. So maybe the manager could work around his menu and cost to generate more transactions, i.e. offering combo deals amounting to the highest value in the histogram,
