The pictograph shows the number of cookies were sold at a bakery last Monday. How many Triple Peanut and Oatmeal cookies were sold last Monday?


Solution:

In the graph, four cookies are shown under Triple Peanut cookies and three cookies are shown under Oatmeal cookies.

[In the pictograph, the key tells the number of cookies it represents.]

Each cookie represents 25 cookies.
[In the pictograph, the key tells the number of cookies it represents.]

The total number of Triple Peanut and Oatmeal cookies sold last Monday = Number of Triple Peanut cookies sold + Number of Oatmeal cookies sold

The total number of Triple Peanut and Oatmeal cookies sold last Monday = Number of Triple Peanut cookies sold + Number of Oatmeal cookies sold

= 25 × 4 + 25 × 3 = 100 + 75 = 175

= 25 × 4 + 25 × 3 = 100 + 75 = 175

So, total number of Triple Peanut and Oatmeal cookies sold last Monday is 175.

d.
5


Solution:

In the graph, five pictures are shown under the Tennis and three pictures are shown under Football.

In the graph, five pictures are shown under the Tennis and three pictures are shown under Football.

If each picture represents 5 students, then 5 pictures under Basketball represents 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 = 25 students and 3 pictures under Football represents 5 + 5 + 5 = 15 students.

If each picture represents 5 students, then 5 pictures under Basketball represents 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 = 25 students and 3 pictures under Football represents 5 + 5 + 5 = 15 students.

Number of students chose Tennis than Football = Number of students chose Tennis - Number of students chose Football

Number of students chose Tennis than Football = Number of students chose Tennis - Number of students chose Football

Number of students chose Tennis than Football = 20 - 15 = 5

Number of students chose Tennis than Football = 20 - 15 = 5

Therefore, 5 students chose Tennis as their favourite sport and Football.

Therefore, 5 students chose Tennis as their favourite sport and Football.
