Question 36
The following bar graph shows the number of houses (out of 100) in a town using different types of fuels for cooking.

Read the bar graph and answer the following questions:
(a) Which fuel is used in maximum number of houses?
(b) How many houses are using coal as fuel?
(c)  Suppose that the total number of houses in the town is 1 lakh. From the above graph, estimate the number of houses using electricity.


Solution

(a) On observing the bar graph, we can conclude that LPG is used in the maximum number of houses ( height of the bar corresponding to LPG is maximum).
(b) 10 houses out of 100 are using coal as fuel.
(c) Number of houses using electricity out of 100 = 5
     Number of houses using electricity out of 1 lakh
     =5100×1lakh=5100×100000=5000
