NCERT solutions for class 6 chapter 9 maths Data Handling is one of the important study material for the students of class 6. The topics which are taught in class 6th mathematics are the basics of the topics which will be taught in class 9 and 10. Data Handling is the requirement of our everyday life. Events such as the recording of student’s attendance, recording marks secured by students after every test, a cricket scoreboard. Similarly, in our everyday life, we have seen a variety of tables comprising of figures, numbers, names etc providing ‘Data’. We can define Date as a collection of numbers providing some genuine information. To score good marks in the upcoming examination students should try to solve these questions provided in the below article. We can answer several queries related to bulk data analysis by studying the diagram. A pictograph visually helps to understand the data. It represents data through pictures of objects. It helps to answer the questions on the data at a glance.

Pictograph representation of data is not only time consuming but complicated too. There are other ways to represent data visually. Uniform width of bars with even spacing in between can be drawn vertically or horizontally. The height of each bar denotes the given number. Such a method of representing information is known as a bar graph or a bar diagram. We have also provided the NCERT solutions for class 6 Maths Data Handling pdf.
