Reading Bar Charts

Grade 6 Math Worksheets

What is a bar diagram with an example?

A bar graph or bar chart is used to show information using bars in a graph for the representation of numbers.

Any given statistical data with a range can be depicted on a bar graph. Read here how to read histograms.

Example 1

A, B, C and D are the candidates who stood for an election in specific territory. Represent the one who won with the highest votes on a bar graph.

  1. 15 votes
  2. 25 votes
  3. 12 votes
  4. 30 votes

  • The highest votes were gained by D, represented in pink in the bar graph.
  • The least votes were received by C, represented in green.

Such pictorial representation is helpful when we have a large data to look at then this makes the data quite understandable.
