Solution

## 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. We get the following bar graph:
