They can be used to create lists, compare data, align and group data, and so on.
They are used to organise data that is too complicated to be adequately described in the text, allowing the reader to see the results quickly.
Example: The following table shows the number of kids and their respective no of hours of TV.
The Number of Hours Kids Watch TV
Number of Kids
More than 4 hours
Zero hours (do not watch)
Table helps us in easily analysing information and getting results from it.
Example: We can easily tell from the above table that four kids watch TV for one hour.
Solved Example 1. From the above table can you tell the number of kids who watch TV for more than four hours?
Ans: Clearly, from row one we can see that two kids watch TV for more than four hours.
Extracting Data From the Table
Sometimes we are not given exact numbers directly in the table and we need to extract information from it.
Let's understand this through an example.
Solved Example 1. Nikki made a list of her close friends and the video games they like and don’t like.
My Friends Name
Video Games they Like
Video Games they Don’t Like
Observe the above data and answer the following questions.
Q. Which video game is liked by most of Nikki’s friends?
Ans. Observe that Super Mario appears two times in the second column. Rest all games appear only once. Hence, Super Mario is the most liked game by Nikki’s friends.
Q. Which video game is not liked by most of Nikki's friends?
Ans. Observe that Temple Run appears two times in the third column. Rest all games appear only once. Hence, Temple Run is not liked by most of Nikki’s friends.
Practical Applications of Table
Daily attendance record is maintained in a table.
School mark sheets are in form of a table.
Your school exam timetable/ daily class timetable also uses a table.
How to Make a Table?
Step 1: Collect data for the table.
Step 2: Select the method of grouping.
Step 3: Draw the table.
Let’s understand this with the help of an example.
Solved Example 1. In a class, 25 kids love to drink milk, 10 kids love to drink coffee and 5 kids love to drink tea. Represent data in a table.
Hint: Make two columns, one for the number of kids and another for the drink they like.
Step 1: Data is already collected and given in the question.
Step 2: We will make two columns one for the number of kids and another for the drink they like.
Step 3: Let’s draw the table:
Type of Drink
Number of Kids
What is a Chart?
A chart is a graphical representation of data.
Data can be represented by symbols, such as bars in a bar chart.
The length of bars in a bar chart is proportional to their values.
Bar charts can be horizontal or vertical. (if bars are vertical we call it a vertical bar chart and if bars are horizontal then we call it a horizontal bar chart)
Drawing a Chart
Step 1: Collect the data.
Step 2: Choose the type of chart.
Step 3: Choose an axis.
Step 4: Draw the chart.
Let’s understand this through an example:
Given that 5 kids like Oranges, 2 kids like Apples, 6 kids like Bananas, and 3 kids like Kiwi.
Let’s make a vertical bar chart for this.
Let the horizontal axis represent the type of fruit and the vertical axis represent the number of kids.
We get the following graph.
A Smart chart with a horizontal axis representing the type of fruit and a vertical axis representing the number of kids
Horizontal Bar Chart
Sometimes instead of making vertical bars we make horizontal bars also. Such a graph we call a Horizontal bar graph.
Example following bar graph shows the number of frog homes present in trees, gardens and ponds.
A smart chart showing the number of frog homes present in trees, gardens and ponds
Reading the Chart
We can read data by observing the length of bars.
In the above graph, seven frogs live in the garden as seven green boxes are present.
Similarly, we can find the number of frogs living in the tree and pond as four and five respectively.
Q1. The following bar chart shows the number of children who like a particular fruit. Can you tell which fruit is liked most by children and which is liked least by children?
A bar chart with particular fruit liked by the number of children
Ans: Most liked fruit: Banana
Least liked fruit: Pineapple
Q 2. The following table shows the number of children who liked a particular sport. Can you tell how many children like Football? Also, tell whether it is the most liked sport or not.
Type of Sports
Number of kids
Ans: 10 children play football. No, it’s not the most liked sport.
