What is the difference between a Histogram and a Pareto plot ?

histogram is a bar graph that uses the height of the bar to convey the  frequency of an event occurring. Each bar in a histogram corresponds  to the frequency of occurrence of a specific event.

Pareto chart displays bars by the height of the bars, signifying the order of impact. It follows the Pareto philosophy (the 80/20 rule) through displaying the events by order of impact.
