Create and interpret tables II


Creating lists and tables helps us compare data, for things such as favourite sports, weather and many more things.  We can then show our data in a column graph, to help us compare our data.

Let's watch a video to see how.

Worked Examples

Ben asked $35$35 people about how many siblings they have. He found that $12$12 people had no siblings, $15$15 people had one sibling, $3$3 people had two siblings and $5$5 people had three siblings.

Write Ben's results in the frequency table below.
