In a survey of 100 people, the sports preferred by them are shown in the table.

Which type of graph is appropriate to represent the data?

**Favorite Sports**

Which type of graph is appropriate to represent the data?

Sports | Athletics | Soccer | Tennis | Baseball | Golf |

Number of people | 15 | 30 | 20 | 25 | 10 |

a. | bar graph | ||

b. | stem-and-leaf plot | ||

c. | circle graph | ||

d. | line graph |

Circle graphs are the best type of graphs for showing the relative proportions of different categories to each other and to the whole.

A line graph shows the relationship between the dependent and independent variables when both are numerical and the dependent variable is a function of the independent variable.

A bar graph is appropriate for comparing different trials or different experimental groups.

The bar graph compares preference of sports among people.

Therefore, bar graph is the appropriate type of graph to represent the given data.

Correct answer : (1)

3.

The table shows the modes of transportation of employees of a company. Identify the most appropriate graph for the data.

a. | stem-and-leaf plot | ||

b. | bar graph | ||

c. | line plot | ||

d. | circle graph |

A stem-and-leaf plot is an arrangement of digits that is used to display and order numerical data.

A line plot is usually used when there is one group of data.

Circle graphs are the best type of graphs for showing the relative proportions of different categories to each other and to the whole.

As the data is given in percents, a circle graph would be appropriate.

Correct answer : (4)

4.

The data shows the ages of 25 residents of a community in Georgia. Which of the following graph would you use to show the data?

a. | circle graph | ||

b. | stem-and-leaf plot | ||

c. | bar graph | ||

d. | line graph |

A line graph shows the relationship between the dependent and independent variables when both are numerical and the dependent variable is a function of the independent variable.

Circle graphs are the best type of graphs for showing the relative proportions of different categories to each other and to the whole.

A stem-and-leaf plot is an arrangement of digits that is used to display and order numerical data.

As the data given is a numerical data, a stem-and-leaf plot would be appropriate.

Correct answer : (2)

5.

The table shows the sales of CD players in 3 different stores in a week. Which type of graph is appropriate to represent the data?

Stores | A | B | C |

Number of CD players sold | 10 | 11 | 15 |

a. | stem-and-leaf plot | ||

b. | bar graph | ||

c. | line graph | ||

d. | circle graph |

Circle graphs are the best type of graphs for showing the relative proportions of different categories to each other and to the whole.

A line graph shows the relationship between the dependent and independent variables when both are numerical and the dependent variable is a function of the independent variable.

A bar graph is appropriate for comparing different trials or different experimental groups.

The bar graph compares sales across stores.

Therefore, bar graph is the appropriate type of graph to represent the given data.

Correct answer : (2)

6.

In a class, 9 students like algebra, 11 like geometry, and 8 like statistics. Which type of graph can be used to show the data?

a. | stem-and-leaf plot | ||

b. | bar graph | ||

c. | line plot | ||

d. | circle graph |

A stem-and-leaf plot is an arrangement of digits that is used to display and order numerical data.

A bar graph is appropriate for comparing different trials or different experimental groups.

A line plot is usually used when there is one group of data.

So, the appropriate graph would be a line plot.

Correct answer : (3)
