The weather during December in a tropical village was either sunny, cloudy, or rainy. The given bar graph shows the number of days of each kind of weather. How many rainy days were there in December?
To analyse the graph, first, we need to see what each bar represents. We can find the labels at the bottom: Sunny, Cloudy, and Rainy. Our question is interested in the number of rainy days. So we focus our attention on the bar that’s labelled Rainy.
We see on the left axis the label Days in December. The further up the bar goes, the more days in December that weather was had. We can trace the line across and it shows us that the number of rainy days in December is five.
According to the graph, in this village, there were five rainy days in December.
