Question 1. 

Hundred students from a certain locality use different modes of travelling to school as given below. Draw a bar graph.

Bus Car Rickshaw Bicycle Walk
32 16 24 20 8

Solution:-

Question 2.

Mr. Mirza’s monthly income is Rs. 7,200. He spends Rs.1,800 on rent, Rs.2,700 on food, Rs.900 on education of his children; Rs. 1,200 on other things and saves the rest. Draw a pie-chart to represent it.

Solution:-

Name of items Expenditure/saving in Rupees Central angle
Rent 1800 \(\frac{1800}{7200} \times 360^{\circ}=90^{\circ}\)
Food 2700 \(\frac{2700}{7200} \times 360^{\circ}=135^{\circ}\)
Education 900 \(\frac{900}{7200} \times 360^{\circ}=45^{\circ}\)
Others 1200 \(\frac{1200}{7200} \times 360^{\circ}=60^{\circ}\)
Saving 600 \(\frac{600}{7200} \times 360^{\circ}=30^{\circ}\)
Total 7200 360°

A 35 \(\frac{35}{100} \times 360^{\circ}=126^{\circ}\)
B 20 \(\frac{20}{100} \times 360^{\circ}=72^{\circ}\)
C 20 \(\frac{20}{100} \times 360^{\circ}=72^{\circ}\)
D 15 \(\frac{15}{100} \times 360^{\circ}=54^{\circ}\)
Others 10 \(\frac{10}{100} \times 360^{\circ}=36^{\circ}\)
100 360°

Question 5.

Solution:-

Question 7.

Manoj appeared for ICSE examination 2018and secured percentage of marks as shown in the following table:

Subject Hindi English Maths Science Social study
Marks as percent 60 45 42 48 75

Represent the above data by drawing a suitable bar graph.

Solution:-

Question 8.

For the data given above in question number 7, draw a suitable pie-graph.

Solution:-

∵ 60+45+42+48+75=270

∴ Central angle for Hindi \(=\frac{60}{270} \times 360^{\circ}=80^{\circ} \)

Central angle for English \(=\frac{45}{270} \times 360^{\circ}=60^{\circ} \)

Central angle for Maths \(=\frac{42}{270} \times 360^{\circ}=45^{\circ}\)

Central angle for science \(=\frac{48}{270} \times 360^{\circ}=64^{\circ}\)

And Central angle for social study \(=\frac{75}{270} \times 360^{\circ}=100^{\circ}\)
