# Statistical Presentation Of Data | Bar Graph | Pie Graph | Line Graph | Example

For easy understanding the variations in data. After the collection and tabulation of data, it can be represented by a graph. Most common graphs are

1. Bar graphs
2. Pie graphs
3. Line graphs

## Bar Graph

Bar graph represents the relation between class interval/group and frequency of that particular class interval.

• Along x-axis is the class distribution and along y-axis is the number of times same event repeats and it is named as frequency of that class/group. ## Pie Graph

It is a circular chart that is divided into a number of sectors. For representing data in a pie graph, circle is divided into sectors.

### Example

The number of bedrooms on each floor of a 15 storey building is given as:

1 2 4 3 2 5 6 5 4 5 2 5 6 6 3

### For pie graph presentation, divide 360 degrees by 15. Because 360 is an angle of a full circle.

360/15 = 24 degrees

• For 1-bedroom sector = 1*24 = 24 degrees
• For 2-bedrooms sector = 3*24 = 72 degrees
• For 3-bedrooms sector = 2*24 = 48 degrees
• For 4-bedrooms sector = 2*24 =48 degrees
• For 5-bedrooms sector =4*24 =96 degrees
• For 6-bedrooms sector = 3*24 =72 degrees
• By adding all the sector angle = 360 degrees

Graphically… ## Line Graph

The simplest type of graphs is the line graph. Most commonly used when given data is in the form of grouped frequency.

Along x-axis is the group number and along y-axis is the frequency with respect to each separate group. 1. graph generator March 8, 2013
