**(1) How many families use 45 units electricity?**

**(2) State the score, the frequency of which is 5.**

**(3) Find N, and Æ© f_{i}x_{i}**

**(4) Find the mean of electricity used by each family in the month of May.**

**Solution: **

(1) 2 families used 45 units od electricity.

(2) The score for which the frequency is 5 is 75.

(3) N = 25 and Æ© *f _{i}x_{i} = *1425

(4) The mean of electricity used by each family in the month of May is given by:

Mean () = Æ© *f _{i}x_{i} */

*N*

= 1425 / 25

= 57

Thus, the mean of electricity used by each family in the month of May is 57 units.

1.

**(1) State the type of the graph.**

**(2) How much is the savings of Vaishali in the month of April?**

**(3) How much is the total of savings of Saroj in the months March and April?**

**(4) How much more is the total savings of Savita than the total savings of Megha?**

**(5) Whose savings in the month of April is the least?**

**Solution: **

(1) The given is a bar graph.

(2) The savings of Vaishali in the month of April is Rs 600.

(3) The total savings of Saroj in the months March and April is Rs 800.

(4) From the table itâ€™s seen that,Â the total savings of Savita = Rs 1000

And, the total savings of Megha = Rs 500

So, the difference in their savings = 1000Â âˆ’Â 500 = 500

Hence, the total savings of Savita is Rs 500 more than the total savings of Megha.

(5) The savings of Megha in the month of April is the least i.e. Rs 200.

**1. Show the following information by a percentage bar graph.**

**Solution:**

Given data,

Division of standard 8 |
A |
B |

D |

Number of students securing grade A |
45 |
33 |
10 |
15 |

Total number of students |
60 |
55 |
40 |
75 |

Percentage of students securing grade A |
(45/60) x 100 = 75% |
(33/55) x 100 = 60% |
(10/40) x 100 = 25% |
(15/75) x 100 = 20% |

Now, the percentage bar graph is:

**2.**

**(1) State the type of the bar graph.**

**(2) How much percent is the Tur production to total production in Ajitaâ€™s farm?**

**(3) Compare the production of Gram in the farms of Yash and Ravi and state whose percentage of production is more and by how much?**

**(4) Whose percentage production of Tur is the least?**

**(5) State production percentages of Tur and gram in Sudhaâ€™s farm.**

**Solution: **

From the given graph, it can be inferred that:

(1) The given graph is a percentage bar graph.

(2) Percent of tur production to the total production in Ajitaâ€™s farm is 60%.

(3) Production of Gram in the farm of Yash = 50%

And, the production of Gram in the farm of Ravi = 30%

So, the difference in the production = 50% â€“ 30% =20%

Thus, Yashâ€™s production of Gram is more and by 20%.

(4) The least production percentage of Tur is of Sudha.

(5) The production percentages of Tur and Gram in Sudhaâ€™s farm are 40% and 60% respectively.

**3. The following data is collected in a survey of some students of 10th standard from some schools. Draw the percentage bar graph of the data.**

Percentage of students having inclination towards science stream |
(90/150) x 100 = 60% |
(60/80) x 100 = 75% |
(25/50) x 100 = 50% |
(16/40) x 100 = 40% |

Percentage of students having inclination towards commerce stream |
(60/150) x 100 = 40% |
(20/80) x 100 = 25% |
(25/50) x 100 = 50% |
(24/40) x 100 = 60% |

The percentage bar graph of the given data is as follows:
