# Use the tables below to draw linear graphs.

a) The number of days a hill side city received snow in different years

b) Population(in thousands) of men and women in a village in different years

**Solution:**

a) Considering ‘Years’ on the horizontal axis and ‘Days’ on the vertical axis starting from origin i.e.(0,0).

By taking the years on the x-axis and the number of days on the y-axis

Taking scale as 1unit = 2days on the y-axis and 2unit = 1year on the x-axis, the linear graph of the given information can be drawn as follows.

b) Considering ‘Years’ on the horizontal axis and ‘Number of persons (i.e. ‘Men’ or ‘Women’) on vertical axis starting from origin i.e. (0,0). Represent ‘Number of men’ as a straight continuous line whereas ‘Number of Women’ as a discontinuous straight line (dashed line).

By taking the years on the x-axis and population on the y-axis

Taking scale as 1unit = 0.5thousand on the y-axis and 2unit = 1year on the x-axis, the linear graph of the given information can be drawn as follows.
