# The expenditure of a family on different heads in a month is given below:

Head Food Education Clothing House Rent Others Savings

Expenditure (in Rs) 4000 2500 1000 3500 2500 1500

Draw a bar graph to represent the data above.

**Solution:**

Given, the table represents the expenditure of a family on different heads in a month.

We have to draw a bar graph to represent the data above.

We represent the heads on the horizontal axis choosing any scale. Let one head be represented by one unit.

We represent the expenditure on the vertical axis.

Since, the maximum expenditure is Rs. 4000,

Let the scale be 1 unit = Rs. 500.

Consider first head i.e., food

Expenditure is Rs. 4000

Since 1 unit = Rs. 500

8 units = Rs. 4000

We draw a rectangular bar with width 1 unit and height 8 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,
