• Question 1

Look at this bar-line chart, which shows how many times Jack cycled to school each week over a 20 week period.

How many times did Jack cycle to school on week 4?

0
EDDIE SAYS
If you look at the x-axis, it shows the week number. For week 1, Jack cycled 2 times. In week 2, he cycled 5 times. Weeks 3 and 4, Jack didn't cycle at all, so the answer is 0. Great start!
• Question 2

Look at this bar-line chart, which shows how many times Jack cycled to school each week over a 20 week period.

How many times did Jack cycle to school on week 5?

3
EDDIE SAYS
Let's have a look at the x-axis for the week number 5. Follow the line on the chart upwards and then check on the y-axis for the number of times Jack cycled. It looks like he cycled 3 times on week 5.
• Question 3

Look at this bar-line chart, which shows how many times Jack cycled to school each week over a 20 week period.

On which week number did Jack cycle to school 4 times?

12
EDDIE SAYS
Locate the 4 on the y-axis and then read across the bar-line graph to find a line that meets. It looks like Jack cycled to school 4 times on week 12. Well done!
• Question 4

Look at this bar-line chart, which shows how many times Jack cycled to school each week over a 20 week period.

On which three weeks do you think Jack was on holiday?

7, 8 and 9
EDDIE SAYS
Take a look at the x-axis of the bar-line chart. Check for any 3-week gaps where there aren't any lines. It looks like weeks 7, 9 and 9 don't have any lines recorded, therefore those were the weeks he was on holiday.
• Question 5

Look at this bar-line chart, which shows how many times Jack cycled to school each week over a 20 week period.

How many times did Jack cycle to school over this 20 week period?

38
EDDIE SAYS
To find out how many times Jack cycled to school over the 20 week period, add up each of the times he cycled weekly and total them: 2 + 5 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 5 + 4 + 5 + 3 + 5 = 38.
• Question 6

Look at this bar-line chart, which shows how many songs Jill downloaded each week over a 15 week period.

1
EDDIE SAYS
If we look at the x-axis labeled week number, we can find week 5 and follow the line upwards to see that Jill downloaded 1 song.
• Question 7

Look at this bar-line chart, which shows how many songs Jill downloaded each week over a 15 week period.

0
EDDIE SAYS
If we look at the x-axis labeled week number, we can find week 10 and see that there isn't a line, so Jill didn't download any songs that week.
• Question 8

Look at this bar-line chart, which shows how many songs Jill downloaded each week over a 15 week period.

4
EDDIE SAYS
Find the tallest line on the bar-line chart. It looks like the most songs Jill downloaded was 7. Follow that line downward on the chart to find out that week 4 was when she downloaded the most songs.
• Question 9

Look at this bar-line chart, which shows how many songs Jill downloaded each week over a 15 week period.

How many more songs did Jill download in week 12 compared to week 11?

5
EDDIE SAYS
Locate weeks 11 and 12 on the bar-line chart. For week 11, 1 song was downloaded and for week 12, 6 songs were downloaded. To find out how many more Jill downloaded in week 12, subtract the two amounts: 6 - 1 = 5.
• Question 10

Look at this bar-line chart, which shows how many songs Jill downloaded each week over a 15 week period.

How many songs were downloaded altogether by Jill in this 15 week period?

28
EDDIE SAYS
To find the total number of songs Jill downloaded, add up the number of songs from each week: 2 + 2 + 7 + 1 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 1 + 6 = 28. Well done!
