Activity 1 Creating a bar graph 1. Using the interest inventory data, sort your assigned set of data and construct a bar graph. 2. Record the fractional part of the data represented by each bar of the graph. 3. Transfer your bar graph to large graph paper. • Make sure that the height of the graph will accommodate a length equal to the total number polled. For example, if you have 19 surveys, make sure you draw your bar graph so that 19 is represented on the vertical axis. • Draw each bar two inches wide. • Color each bar a different color. 4. What conclusions can you draw from your bar graph? 5. Are any of your bars close to a common fractional part of the whole set of data? H 298 Chapter 7
