Here are the codes:

#Random numbers

h2<-rnorm(1000,4)

h1<-rnorm(1000,6)

# Histogram Grey Color

hist(h1, col=rgb(0.1,0.1,0.1,0.5),xlim=c(0,10), ylim=c(0,200), main=”Overlapping Histogram”)

hist(h2, col=rgb(0.8,0.8,0.8,0.5), add=T)

box()

# Histogram Colored (blue and red)

hist(h1, col=rgb(1,0,0,0.5),xlim=c(0,10), ylim=c(0,200), main=”Overlapping Histogram”, xlab=”Variable”)

hist(h2, col=rgb(0,0,1,0.5), add=T)

box()
