I am generating random numbers. The histogram has a sample size of 20 but only 5 bars. How can I control the bar numbers?

histogram accepts the number of bins as a second argument:
x = randn(1000,1);
nbins = 25;
h = histogram(x,nbins)

This doc for histogram has the info to play with the number of bins in your histogram
If you're using such command, you can do it by histogram(X, nBinsYouWant)
