Combining a histogram with a normal distribution plot

We now have a histogram and a normal distribution plot individually, but it would be nice if we could visualize both them on one graph with the same scales. This can easily be done by referencing both plots in a single cell and then using the plt.show() function just once after both plots have been called:

plt.title("Vacation Hours") #Assign title 
plt.xlabel("Hours") #Assign x label 
plt.ylabel("Count") #Assign y label
