Read the graph to find the number of friends that ate more than 10 sundaes in a month.

The graph shows the number of sundaes eaten by a group of friends in a month. The friends are Daniel, Madison, Olivia, and Benjamin. This axis is called the 𝑦-axis. It shows the number of sundaes eaten. This graph has a key. If we see a picture of a sundae, it’s worth three sundaes. One sundae is worth three. Two are worth six. And three are worth nine.

We’re looking for the number of friends who ate more than 10 sundaes in a month. We know that three sundaes equals nine. So anything above nine could be more than 10. Daniel ate four sundaes. Four times three is 12. Madison ate six sundaes. And we know that each of these is worth three. Six times three is 18. So Madison ate 18 sundaes. There are four sundaes in Benjamin’s column. And we know that each of these is worth three sundaes. Four threes are 12. Daniel, Madison, and Benjamin all ate more than 10 sundaes in a month.

The number of friends that ate more than 10 sundaes in a month is three.
