**Draw a bar graph to represent the above information choosing the scale of your choice.**

**Answer**

By taking a scale of 1 unit length = 10 books we may draw a bar graph of above data as follows

**Ex 9.4 Class 6 Maths Question 3. Following table shows the number of bicycles manufactured in a factory during the years 1998 to 2002. Illustrate this data using a bar graph. Choose a scale of

**(a) In which year were the maximum number of bicycles manufactured?**

**(b) In which year were the minimum number of bicycles manufactured?**

**Answer**

By taking a scale of 1 unit length = 100 bicycles we may draw a bar graph of above data as follows

(b) In the year 1999, minimum number of bicycles were manufactured i.e 600 bicycles

**Ex 9.4 Class 6 Maths Question 4. Number of persons in various age groups in a town is given in the following table.
**

Age group(in years) |
1-14 |
15-29 |
30-44 |
45-59 |
60-74 |
75 and above |

Number ofpersons |
2 lakhs |
1 lakh60 thousands |
1 lakh20 thousands |
1 lakh20 thousands |
80thousands |
40thousands |

**Draw a bar graph to represent the above information and answer the following questions.**

**(take 1 unit length = 20 thousands)**

**(a) Which two age groups have same population?**

**(b) All persons in the age group of 60 and above are called senior citizens. How many ****senior citizens are there in the town?**

**Answer**

By taking a scale of 1 unit length = 20 thousands we may draw a bar graph of above data as follows

(a) The two age groups which have same population are 30-44 and 45-59

(b) Senior citizens are the persons between the age group either from 60-74 or from 75 above. Therefore

Number of senior citizens in the town = 80000 + 40000

= 1 lakh 20 thousand

Hence, the number of senior citizens in the town are 1 lakh 20 thousand
