## Introduction to Data Interpretation

#### Data Interpretation

Direction: The following bar graph shows the production of table fans in a factory during one week. Study the bar graph and answer the given questions.

1. The ratio of the total production of table fans in the factory from Monday to Wednesday to that from Thursday to Saturday is :

1. From the given bar diagram , we see
The total production of table fans from Monday to Wednesday = 260 + 540 + 360 = 1160
The total production of table fans from Thursday to Saturday = 120 + 200 + 320 = 640
Required ratio = The total production of table fans from Monday to Wednesday : The total production of table fans from Thursday to Saturday

##### Correct Option: C

From the given bar diagram , we see
The total production of table fans from Monday to Wednesday = 260 + 540 + 360 = 1160
The total production of table fans from Thursday to Saturday = 120 + 200 + 320 = 640
Required ratio = The total production of table fans from Monday to Wednesday : The total production of table fans from Thursday to Saturday
∴ Required ratio = 1160 : 640 = 29 : 16

1. The average production of table fans in that week is :

1. On the basis of given graph in question ,
Sum of production of table fans = 260 + 540 + 360 + 120 + 200 + 320 = 1800
Number of days = 6

 Required average = Sum of production of table fans Number of days

 Required average = 260 + 540 + 360 + 120 + 200 + 320 6

##### Correct Option: C

On the basis of given graph in question ,
Sum of production of table fans = 260 + 540 + 360 + 120 + 200 + 320 = 1800
Number of days = 6

 Required average = Sum of production of table fans Number of days

 Required average = 260 + 540 + 360 + 120 + 200 + 320 6

 Required average = 1800 = 300 6

1. The maximum production exceeds the minimum production by :

1. As per the given bar graph , we see
Maximum production = 540
Minimum production = 120
Required difference = Maximum production - Minimum production

##### Correct Option: B

As per the given bar graph , we see
Maximum production = 540
Minimum production = 120
Required difference = Maximum production - Minimum production
Required difference = 540 – 120 = 420

Direction: The bar-chart is showing the number of accidents in a city during the first six month of a year. Examine the bar chart and answer the following questions.

1. Percentage of decrease in the number of accidents from May to June is :

1. On the basis of given graph in question ,
The number of accidents in May = 35
The number of accidents in June = 27
Decrease = 35 - 27 = 8

 Required percent = Decrease × 100 The number of accidents in May

 Required percent = 8 × 100 = 160 35 7

##### Correct Option: C

On the basis of given graph in question ,
The number of accidents in May = 35
The number of accidents in June = 27
Decrease = 35 - 27 = 8

 Required percent = Decrease × 100 The number of accidents in May

 Required percent = 8 × 100 = 160 35 7

 Required percent = 22 6 % 7

1. By what number, is the number of accidents that occurred in April is greater than the average number of accidents that occurred during the 6 months period?

1. According to given bar graph , we have
Total number of accidents = 25 + 19 + 30 + 43 + 35 + 27 = 179
Number of months = 6

 Average Number of accidents = Total number of accidents = 29.83 Number of months

 Average Number of accidents = 179 = 29.83 6

Number of accidents in April = 43

##### Correct Option: A

According to given bar graph , we have
Total number of accidents = 25 + 19 + 30 + 43 + 35 + 27 = 179
Number of months = 6

 Average Number of accidents = Total number of accidents = 29.83 Number of months

 Average Number of accidents = 179 = 29.83 6

Number of accidents in April = 43
∴ Required answer = 43 – 29.83 = 13.17
