You're running out of room on the y-axis. I don't
know how to cure it in general because I don't know
how to find the general height of the largest bin but
this shows the problem. You need to extend the ylim.
histtst <-
function(n = 100,...){
set.seed(15) # makes rnorm reproducible
par(mfrow = c(2,1))
x <- rnorm(n)
hist(x, labels = TRUE, ylim=c(0,8))
boxplot(x, horizontal = TRUE)
}
hh1 <- histtst(12)
