## Bar Graph

 Pictograph Bar Graph Double Bar Graph Histogram Pie Graph Line Graph Difference between Bar Graph and Histogram

In Bar Graph, bars with equal width are used either horizontally or vertically with equal spacing between each other. Length of bars represents the given number which is being referred to in the question.

A Bar Graph is used to show comparison among categories

Example 1 : In classroom of 15 kids, they were asked for their favourite color and following bar graph is prepared in the basis of their choices

On the basis of above Bar Graph, lets answer the following questions:
Question 1 - Every colors is like my how many kids.
Blue = 4 kids
Green = 4 kids
Yellow = 2 kids
Pink = 5 kids

Question 2  Which color is the most liked color and by how many kids
Answer- Pink is the most liked color and its liked by 5 kids.

Question 3  Which color is the least liked and by how many kids
Answer - Yellow is the least liked color and its liked by only 2 kids.

Example 2 : Observe the following bar graph which represent student attendance on daily basis with class strength of 50 students

On the basis of above Bar Graph, lets answer the following questions:

Question 1  On which day there is maximum attendance and how much ?
Answer - Wednesday with 50 students present in the class

Question 2  On which day there is minimum attendance and how much ?
Answer - Friday with 36 students present in the class

Question 3  Is there any day on which there is 100% attendance, if yes, which is that day ?
Answer - Yes, there is 100% attendance on Wednesday
