00:00:02.840 --> 00:00:07.170
The line plot shows the number of items recycled in a certain day.
00:00:07.940 --> 00:00:12.400
How many steel cans and newspapers were recycled on that day?
00:00:14.250 --> 00:00:16.480
Okay, letâ€™s break the question down.
00:00:17.630 --> 00:00:19.180
This is a line plot.
00:00:20.510 --> 00:00:25.010
We use a line plot to plot data along a line.
00:00:26.860 --> 00:00:34.400
The question and the line plot tell us that the data is the number of items recycled in a certain day.
00:00:35.520 --> 00:00:40.890
And so the title of our line plot is Number of Items Recycled.
00:00:42.120 --> 00:00:44.890
This data is plotted along the line.
00:00:47.010 --> 00:00:55.450
Different items were recycled such as steel cans, plastic bottles, and newspapers.
00:00:56.590 --> 00:01:02.680
The question asks us how many steel cans and newspapers were recycled.
00:01:03.840 --> 00:01:06.070
So we need to look at this data.
00:01:07.450 --> 00:01:10.560
This data represents the number of steel cans.
00:01:11.380 --> 00:01:13.840
And if we count them, we can see that there are three.
00:01:14.930 --> 00:01:18.910
This data represents the number of newspapers that were recycled.
00:01:20.160 --> 00:01:22.570
And if we count them, we see that there are two.
00:01:23.610 --> 00:01:26.700
So we need to add together three and two.
00:01:27.940 --> 00:01:28.990
The answer is five.
00:01:29.420 --> 00:01:36.520
There were a total of five items recycled on that day: three steel cans and two newspapers.
