In this worksheet, understand and read information from a bar chart.
Kirstie timed how long it took her to cycle to the paper shop every day for a month. The results are in the bar chart.
What was her shortest time for any journey in minutes? How many occasions did she make this journey?
Frequency is a measure of how often something happens as shown on the y-axis. The height of each bar tells us how often Kirstie took that amount of time to complete the journey. The x-axis tells us the amount of time it took to complete the journey.
The first bar shows the journey only took 8 minutes, so 8 minutes was the shortest time.
Kirstie took this amount of time (8 minutes) on just 1 occasion (height of bar).
