Bar Graph Definition
A bar graph is a great tool for representing data that are unrelated to one another and do not need to be displayed in any particular sequence. The bars provide a visual representation for comparing amounts in several categories. The x and y axes, commonly known as the horizontal and vertical axes, the title, labels, and a bar graph are all included.
Bar Graph shows all the data, the heights of the rectangular bars are proportional to the values they represent. The graph's bars can be displayed either vertically or horizontally. Bar graphs, commonly referred to as bar charts, are a visual depiction of groups of data. It is one method of processing data.
What is a Bar Diagram and How to Draw a Bar Graph?
With the help of an example, let's learn how to draw a bar graph. Lana visited the market to purchase a variety of fruits, including 5 apples, 3 mangoes, 2 watermelons, 3 strawberries, and 6 oranges. She wants to create a bar graph to present the data so she can see what kinds of fruits she purchases the most frequently.
Let's use the next few stages to create a bar graph of the fruit that is most frequently purchased.
Step 1: Take a piece of graph paper, and label the bars with a caption like "Most Bought Fruit."
Step 2: On a plane, draw the horizontal (x-axis) and vertical (y-axis) axes.
Step 3: Give the horizontal axis, which is an independent category, the name "Types of Fruits," and the vertical axis, which is a dependent category, the name "Number of Fruits."
Step 4: Write the names of the fruits on the horizontal axis, such as apples, mangoes, watermelon, strawberries, and oranges, and leave an equal gap or spacing between each fruit.
Step 5: Describe the graph's scale, which demonstrates how numbers are used in the data. It is a system of markers spaced at specific intervals that aids in object measurement.
Step 6: Start constructing rectangular bars for each fruit, leaving equal spaces between them, and assigning heights to the corresponding numbers.Step 7: Now that the bar graph is complete, determine which fruit is the most popular by measuring the height of the rectangle bars for each fruit.
