In this activity, we will be learning how to answer questions by reading the information in a bar chart.
This bar chart shows information gathered from a group of children who were asked to name their favourite crisp flavour.
This shows that 2 children preferred Roast Beef flavour and 3 children preferred Pizza.
Let's try an example question together using this bar chart.
How many children liked either prawn cocktail or pizza flavoured crisps?
To answer this question, we need to look carefully at the bar chart.
We can see that 1 child liked prawn cocktail and 3 liked pizza.
To find the total, we add the numbers.
3 + 1 = 4
So, 4 children liked either prawn cocktail or pizza flavour crisps.
Now you're ready to tackle some questions by yourself. Good luck.
