Bar Graphs with Scales of Two, Five, or 10
00:00:06.460 --> 00:00:16.750
In this video, we’re going to learn how to read or interpret information in bar graphs and use this information to help us answer questions.
00:00:18.210 --> 00:00:19.870
This is a bar graph.
00:00:21.070 --> 00:00:24.480
The graph shows us the results of a shell hunt.
00:00:26.100 --> 00:00:32.420
Ben, Mia, and Sophie went on a shell hunt.
00:00:33.670 --> 00:00:37.440
The green bar shows us how many shells Ben collected.
00:00:38.610 --> 00:00:41.970
The orange bar shows us how many shells Mia collected.
00:00:43.180 --> 00:00:46.920
And the blue bar shows how many shells were collected by Sophie.
00:00:48.210 --> 00:00:49.640
This is the scale.
00:00:50.660 --> 00:00:54.800
The scale tells us the number of shells collected by each person.
00:00:55.710 --> 00:01:00.570
The scale starts at zero and goes up in ones.
00:01:01.520 --> 00:01:20.170
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10.
00:01:20.840 --> 00:01:23.410
This scale goes from zero to 10.
00:01:25.060 --> 00:01:28.480
Let’s work out how many shells each person collected.
00:01:29.710 --> 00:01:31.950
This is the height of Ben’s bar.
00:01:33.300 --> 00:01:38.480
We need to draw a line across the top of Ben’s bar to the scale.
00:01:45.310 --> 00:01:52.180
Ben’s bar reaches the number five, which means that Ben collected five shells.
00:01:53.360 --> 00:01:54.640
This is Mia’s bar.
00:01:55.910 --> 00:02:01.030
Again, we’re going to draw a line across the top of her bar to the scale.
00:02:06.700 --> 00:02:09.680
Mia collected seven shells.
00:02:12.630 --> 00:02:14.490
Let’s do the same for Sophie’s bar.
00:02:19.900 --> 00:02:22.370
Sophie collected 10 shells.
00:02:24.170 --> 00:02:30.430
In this video, we’re going to learn how to read scales of two, five, or 10.
00:02:31.600 --> 00:02:34.390
The scale in this bar graph goes up in ones.
00:02:35.390 --> 00:02:37.970
What if the scale went up in twos?
00:02:38.820 --> 00:02:42.130
The number of shells collected by each person would double.
00:02:42.880 --> 00:02:44.400
Ben collected 10.
00:02:45.420 --> 00:02:48.200
Mia would have collected 14 shells.
00:02:48.970 --> 00:02:51.160
And Sophie would have collected 20.
00:02:52.550 --> 00:03:03.720
When we’re reading information presented in bar graphs, we need to look very closely at the scale and work out what each mark or each interval is worth.
00:03:06.690 --> 00:03:08.740
Let’s try some practice questions.
00:03:09.590 --> 00:03:14.560
In these questions, we need to read scales of two, five, or 10.
00:03:17.020 --> 00:03:20.910
The bar graph shows how many ice creams were sold at a fair.
00:03:22.240 --> 00:03:24.680
How many strawberry ice creams were sold?
00:03:25.920 --> 00:03:28.210
How many chocolate ice creams were sold?
00:03:29.690 --> 00:03:33.380
The bar graph shows the flavors of ice cream sold at the fair.
00:03:34.970 --> 00:03:42.140
The different flavors were chocolate, and this is represented by the orange bar on the graph.
00:03:43.320 --> 00:03:46.530
The blue bar shows the number of vanilla ice cream sold.
00:03:47.470 --> 00:03:50.660
The green bar shows the number of mint ice cream sold.
00:03:51.640 --> 00:03:55.500
And the pink bar shows the number of strawberry ice cream sold.
00:03:56.750 --> 00:04:02.140
In the first part of the question, we need to work out how many strawberry ice creams were sold.
00:04:03.350 --> 00:04:08.980
And in the second part of the question, we need to work out how many chocolate ice creams were sold.
00:04:10.260 --> 00:04:12.300
Let’s start with strawberry.
00:04:13.000 --> 00:04:14.700
Remember, that’s the pink bar.
00:04:16.070 --> 00:04:21.770
The numbers on the scale at the bottom tell us how many of each flavor of ice cream was sold.
00:04:23.720 --> 00:04:26.610
What does the scale go up by each time?
00:04:27.720 --> 00:04:43.430
Five, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50.
00:04:44.830 --> 00:04:47.090
This scale goes up in fives.
00:04:48.290 --> 00:04:51.640
Let’s count the number of strawberry ice cream sold.
00:04:52.000 --> 00:04:53.950
We need to count in fives.
00:04:55.030 --> 00:05:03.900
Five, 10, 15, 20, 25.
00:05:05.170 --> 00:05:08.200
25 strawberry ice creams were sold.
00:05:09.210 --> 00:05:12.840
The pink bar reaches number 25 on the scale.
00:05:14.500 --> 00:05:16.630
How many chocolate ice creams were sold?
00:05:18.070 --> 00:05:20.820
We need to look at the orange bar on the graph.
00:05:21.910 --> 00:05:33.390
And if we draw a line from the bar down to the scale, we can see that 40 chocolate ice creams were sold.
00:05:34.590 --> 00:05:41.230
The number of strawberry ice creams sold at the fair is 25, and the number of chocolate ice creams sold is 40.
00:05:44.370 --> 00:05:48.870
The graph shows the number of boys and girls in two different classes.
00:05:49.920 --> 00:05:52.890
What is the largest number of boys in a class?
00:05:53.910 --> 00:06:14.190
This bar on the graph shows us the number of boys in class two A. This bar shows us the number of girls in two A. This bar shows us the number of boys in two B. And this bar is the number of girls in two B. We have to find the largest number of boys in a class.
00:06:15.200 --> 00:06:17.400
Which class has the most boys?
00:06:17.450 --> 00:06:20.000
Is it two A or two B?
00:06:21.410 --> 00:06:34.910
We can see that the number of boys in two A is more than the number of boys in two B. We can tell this because the bar for the two A boys is taller than the bar for the two B boys.
00:06:36.400 --> 00:06:38.580
How many boys are there in two A?
00:06:39.570 --> 00:06:46.280
We’ve drawn a line from the top of the bar, and we can see it’s between number 12 and 14.
00:06:47.460 --> 00:06:55.710
If the scale goes up in twos, then the number halfway between 12 and 14 is the number 13.
00:06:56.670 --> 00:07:07.020
The class with the largest number of boys is two A. There are 13 boys in this class, so the largest number of boys in a class is 13.
00:07:08.610 --> 00:07:12.690
The bar graph shows how many children like each type of food for dinner.
00:07:13.650 --> 00:07:15.850
Which food is most popular?
00:07:17.130 --> 00:07:20.590
How many more children like pizza than curry?
00:07:21.780 --> 00:07:29.810
This bar graph shows us children’s favorite dinners, burger, curry, or pizza.
00:07:30.600 --> 00:07:36.690
We have to read the information presented in the graph to work out which food is the most popular.
00:07:38.070 --> 00:07:43.840
To answer this question, we need to figure out which of the bars is the longest.
00:07:44.670 --> 00:07:45.830
It’s the pink bar.
00:07:46.690 --> 00:07:50.090
This means the food which is most popular is pizza.
00:07:50.840 --> 00:07:56.490
In the second part of the question, we need to work out how many more children like pizza than curry.
00:07:57.330 --> 00:08:00.510
We can imagine the scale on the graph is a number line.
00:08:01.140 --> 00:08:08.920
And this is where the bar for pizza reaches on the number line, between the numbers 40 and 50.
00:08:09.920 --> 00:08:13.250
The difference between 40 and 50 is 10.
00:08:14.180 --> 00:08:16.660
And there are five small intervals.
00:08:17.370 --> 00:08:20.650
That means each of the smaller intervals is worth two.
00:08:21.830 --> 00:08:30.260
40, 42, 44, 46, 48, 50.
00:08:31.340 --> 00:08:34.800
The number of children who like pizza is 42.
00:08:35.750 --> 00:08:39.410
This arrow shows the number of children who liked curry the best.
00:08:40.170 --> 00:08:45.540
The number of children who like curry best is between the number 20 and 30 on the scale.
00:08:46.380 --> 00:08:48.660
And we know that each interval is worth two.
00:08:48.660 --> 00:08:51.060
So let’s start counting in twos from number 20.
00:08:51.540 --> 00:08:56.460
20, 22, 24, 26.
00:08:57.750 --> 00:09:01.800
We have to find the difference between 26 and 42.
00:09:02.910 --> 00:09:08.570
We can start at number 26 on the number line and count forward in twos until we reach 42.
00:09:09.680 --> 00:09:23.150
Two, four, six, eight, 10, 12, 14, 16.
00:09:24.320 --> 00:09:28.200
16 more children like pizza than curry.
00:09:29.270 --> 00:09:32.010
We read the information in the bar graph.
00:09:32.740 --> 00:09:34.970
The most popular food is pizza.
00:09:35.840 --> 00:09:39.310
We knew this because the pink bar is longest.
00:09:40.350 --> 00:09:45.060
26 children preferred curry, and 42 preferred pizza.
00:09:45.950 --> 00:09:50.560
16 more children like pizza than curry.
00:09:52.820 --> 00:09:54.480
What have we learned in this video?
00:09:55.500 --> 00:10:03.100
We’ve learned how to read scales of two, five, or 10 on a bar graph.
