The tally chart shows the marks that students in a class received in a mathematics test. Using the information from the tally chart, complete the frequency table.

In this question, we are given a tally chart for the marks of students in a mathematics test and asked to use this to complete a frequency table. To do this, we can start by recalling that the frequency in each column of the table is the number of people who scored those marks. And we can find this using the tally chart. We do this by recalling that each line in a tally chart represents a frequency of one. So we see that in the first column of the tally chart there are nine lines, so the frequency is nine. We can then add this into our frequency table. The frequency of the first set is nine.

We need to follow this process for every column in the table. In the next column in the tally chart, we see that there are 14 lines. So, the frequency of the second column in our frequency table is 14. Continuing this process, we find a frequency of 12 in the next set, a frequency of 16 in the set starting at 20, and a frequency of six in the final set. Writing these frequencies in order, we have found that the frequencies are nine, 14, 12, 16, and six.
