RD Sharma solutions Class 9 Chapter 23 is given here which consists of questions and answers related to statistics. In this chapter, students will learn graphical representation of data. Graphical representation is a better way to analyze any numerical data. A graph is a type of chart in which the statistical data are represented (In form of lines or curves). Graphs help us to understand the relationship between variables and measure the position or values of one variable when the other variable is changed by a certain value. Here you will find three exercises of class 9 Maths chapter 23 Graphical Representation of Statistical Data. The RD Sharma solutions given here are for Class 9 and include the solutions from the chapter 23. Click on the link below to access all the solutions.

Represent the above information by a pictograph.
Solution:
The given information can be represented using a pictograph as below:
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 agegroup 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 agegroup 6065?
(iv) How many persons are more in the agegroup 1015 than in the age group 3035?
(v) What is the agegroup of exactly 1200 persons living in the town?
(vi) What is the total number of persons living in the town in the agegroup 5055?
(vii) What is the total number of persons living in the town in the agegroups 1015 and 6065?
(vii) Whether the population in general increases, decreases or remains constant with the increase in the agegroup.
Solution:
(i) Youngest agegroup is 1015 years
The number of persons belonging to this group = 1400
The oldest agegroup is 7075 years and
The number of persons belonging to this group = 300
Now,
The percentage of youngest agegroup persons over those in the oldest group is as below:
1400/300 × 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 – 65 = 800.
(iv) Number of persons in the age group 10 – 15 = 1400
Number of persons in the age group 3035 = 1100.
Hence the number of more persons in the age group 10 – 15 than the group 3035 is 1400 — 1100 = 300.
(v) Age group of 1200 persons living in the town is 20 – 25.
(vi) Total number of persons living in the town in the agegroup 50 – 55 is 900.
(vii) Total number of persons living in the town in the agegroups 10 15 and 60 – 65 is 1400 + 800 = 2200.
(viii) We have observed that, the height of the bars decreases as the agegroup increases. Hence, the population decreases with the increases in the agegroup.

Question 1: Explain the reading and interpretation of bar graphs.
Solution: A bar graph consists a sequence of vertical or horizontal bar lines or rectangles. Bar lines may be either horizontal or vertical. We can easily collect the information and conclude various observations from a given bar graph which is referred as the interpretation of the bar graph.
Question 2: Read the following bar graph and answer the following questions:

Solution:
(i) The bar graph represents the import and export (in 100 Crores of rupees) from 198283 to 198687.
(ii) 198283
(iii) 198687
(iv) 198687
Question 3: The following bar graph shows the results of an annual examination in a secondary school. Read the bar graph given below, and choose the correct alternative in each of the following:
(i)The pair of classes in which the results of boys and girls are inversely proportional are:
(a) VI, VIII (b) VI, IX (c) VII, IX (d) VIII, X
(ii) The class having the lowest failure rate of girls is:
(a) VI (b) X (c) IX (d) VIII
(iii) The class having the lowest pass rate of students is:
(a) VI (b) VII (c) VIII (d) IX
Solution:
(i) Option (b) is correct.
(ii) Option (a) is correct.
(iii) Option (b) is correct.
The sum of the heights of the bars for boys and girls in class VII = 95 + 40 = 135 (which is minimum)
