(frē′kwən-sē)
n. pl. fre·quen·cies
1. The property or condition of occurring at frequent intervals.
2. Mathematics & Physics The number of times a specified periodic phenomenon occurs within a specified interval, as:
a. The number of repetitions of a complete sequence of values of a periodic function per unit variation of an independent variable.
b. The number of complete cycles of a periodic process occurring per unit time.
c. The number of repetitions per unit time of a complete waveform, as of an electric current.

once in a blue moon Very rarely. A blue moon occurs when there is a full moon twice in the same month, an unusual event, but one that takes place from time to time.

rare as hen’s teeth See scarce as hen’s teeth, ABSENCE.
