Represent the information above by a bar graph.

**Solution:**

Given, the table represents the expenditure on education of a country during a five year period (2002 - 2006), in crores of rupees.

We have to present the information by a bar graph.

We can represent the education of a country on the horizontal axis choosing any scale.

Let one head be represented by one unit.

We can represent the expenditure on the vertical axis.

Since, the maximum expenditure is Rs. 240 crore

Let the scale be 1 unit = Rs. 25 crore.

Consider first head i.e., elementary education

Expenditure is Rs. 240 crores

Since 1 unit = Rs. 25 crores

9.6 units = Rs. 240 crores

We draw a rectangular bar with width 1 unit and height 9.6 units.

Similarly, other heads are drawn by leaving a gap of 1/2 unit in between two consecutive bars.

The bar graph for given data is shown below,
