The picture graph shows how many cupcakes a cafe sold in a day. How many vanilla cupcakes did they sell? How many strawberry and lemon cupcakes did they sell altogether?
The picture graph shows the number of cupcakes sold by a cafe in a day. We’re also told that each green circle is worth 10 cupcakes. We’re asked to work out how many vanilla cupcakes the cafe sold. We can find the information in this row, the vanilla row. There are two green circles, which is equal to 20 because each green circle is worth 10. So, we know they sold a total of 20 vanilla cupcakes that day.
Now, we need to find out how many strawberry and lemon cupcakes were sold on that day. So, we have to work out the total of the strawberry cupcakes sold and the lemon cupcakes sold. There are three circles in the row for strawberry cupcakes, and we know that each circle is worth 10. Three tens are 30.
And in the lemon cupcake row, there are five circles. Five tens are 50. To find the total of the strawberry and lemon cupcakes, we need to add together 30 and 50. 30 and 50 equals 80. The picture graph shows how many cupcakes were sold in a day. The cafe sold 20 vanilla cupcakes and 80 strawberry and lemon cupcakes.
