need breakdown by number of games bought

I have a spreadsheet with three columns (see attached sample - note, all names have been changed).  I need an excel chart that would show many users bought 1 game, how many users bought 2 games, how many users bought 3 games, and so on.

How would I do that?   purchases.xlsx

Hi!

I would use a pivot table and pivot chart for this.  It will count the number of games for you.  I've attached an example.

Hi aturetsky,

A combination of a pivot table and then a COUNTIF function on the pivot table results should produce the chart you are wanting.  I have attached a workbook that does this.
 Purchases.xlsx

Your original data is on the first sheet ("Data"); a pivot that sums the number of games per person is on the second sheet ("Pivot") and the table and chart of the number of members per games purchased is on the third sheet ("Summary").

Since there is a large quantity of single-game purchasers, the graph doesn't show the 4- or 5-game quanity well.  You could change the y-axis to a logarithm scale to show them better.

Yes, but how do I get the breakdown I requested, not merely the number of games per user.
