Various modes of transport used by 1850 students of a school are given below:
Draw a bar graph to represent the above data.
Open in App
We can draw the bar graph by following the given steps:
Step 1- On a graph paper, draw a horizontal line OX as x-axis and vertical line OY as y-axis.
Step 2- Along OX, write the names of the modes of transport at the points taken at a uniform gap.
Step 3- Choose the scale:
1 big division = 50 students
1 small division = 5 student
Step 4- Heights of the various bars:
School bus = 128 small divisions = 12 big divisions and 8 small divisions
Private bus = 72 small divisions = 7 big divisions and 2 small divisions
Bicycle = 98 small divisions = 9 big divisions and 8 small divisions
Rickshaw = 42 small divisions = 4 big divisions and 2 small divisions
By foot = 30 small divisions = 3 big divisions
Step 5- Draw the bars of equal width on x-axis. The difference between the two bars should also be the same.
