**Question 3: The population of Delhi State in different census years is as given below:**

Cenus year | 1961 | 1971 | 1981 | 1991 | 2001 |

Population in lakhs | 30 | 55 | 70 | 110 | 150 |

**Represent the above information with the help of a bar graph.**

**Solutions: **

Let us consider the horizontal and vertical axes represent the years and population in lakhs respectively.

The heights of the rectangles are proportional to the population in lakhs.

Bar Graph:

**Question 4: Read the bar graph shown below and answer the following questions:**

**(i) What is the information given by the bar graph?**

**(ii) How many tickets of Assam State Lottery were sold by the agent?**

**(iii) Of which state, were the maximum number of tickets sold?**

**(iv) State whether true or false.**

**The maximum number of tickets sold is three times the minimum number of tickets sold.**

**(v) Of which state were the minimum numbers of tickets sold?**

**Solution:**

**(i) **Bar graph represents the number of tickets of different state lotteries sold by an agent on a day.

**(ii)** Number of tickets of Assam State Lottery were sold by the agent = 40.

**(iii)** Maximum numbers of tickets were sold is 100, in the state Haryana.

**(iv)** Maximum number of tickets were sold is 100, in the state Haryana. Minimum number of tickets were sold is 20, in the state Rajasthan.

It is clear that 100 are equal to 5 times of 20.

Hence, the statement is false.

**(v)** The minimum numbers of tickets were sold is 20, in the state Rajasthan.

**Question 5: Study the bar graph representing the number of persons in various age groups in a town shown in figure. Observe the bar graph and answer the following questions:**

**(i) What is the percentage of the youngest age-group persons over those in the oldest age group?**

**(ii) What is the total population of the town?**

**(iii) What is the number of persons in the age-group 60-65?**

**(iv) How many persons are more in the age-group 10-15 than in the age group 30-35?**

**(v) What is the age-group of exactly 1200 persons living in the town?**

**(vi) What is the total number of persons living in the town in the age-group 50-55?**

**(vii) What is the total number of persons living in the town in the age-groups 10-15 and 60-65?**

**(vii) Whether the population in general increases, decreases or remains constant with the increase in the age-group.**

**Solution:**

**(i)** Youngest age-group is 10-15 years

The number of persons belonging to this group = 1400

The oldest age-group is 70-75 years and

The number of persons belonging to this group = 300

Now,

The percentage of youngest age-group persons over those in the oldest group is as below:

1400/300 Ã— 100 = 1400/3

**(ii)** Population of the town = 300 + 800 + 900 + 1000 + 1100 + 1200 + 1400 = 6700

**(iii)** Number of persons in the age group 60 â€“ 65 = 800.

**(iv)** Number of persons in the age group 10 â€“ 15 = 1400

Number of persons in the age group 30-35 = 1100.

Hence the number of more persons in the age group 10 â€“ 15 than the group 30-35 is 1400 â€” 1100 = 300.

**(v)** Age group of 1200 persons living in the town is 20 â€“ 25.

**(vi)** Total number of persons living in the town in the age-group 50 â€“ 55 is 900.

**(vii)** Total number of persons living in the town in the age-groups 10 -15 and 60 â€“ 65 is 1400 + 800 = 2200.

**(viii)** We have observed that, the height of the bars decreases as the age-group increases. Hence, the population decreases with the increases in the age-group.
