Grouped Data

When raw data is arranged in a table in order to extract the information contained by it easily, is called grouped data.

Presentation of Data

Data is presented with the help of different types of graphs, which are as follows.

Pictograph

When the data is represented on the graph with the help of pictures, it is known as pictograph.

- Example

In the following pictograph, number of students who are present in different classes has been shown:

Key: One boy represents 8 students.

(a) How many students were present in class III?

Barograph

When the data is represented on the graph with the help of bars, it is known as Barograph.

- Example

In the following bar graph, number of fans sold by a shop during a week has been shown.

(a) How many fans were sold by the shop during the week?
