Worksheet: Line Plots
In this worksheet, we will practice drawing and analyzing line plots displaying a data set of measurements in fractions or decimals of a unit.
Which of the descriptions is not true for the distribution represented by the diagram?
- AThe distribution has an outlier at 5.
- BThe distribution has a cluster from 21 to 27.
- CThe distribution has a peak at 26.
- DThe distribution is symmetric.
- EThe distribution has a gap from 6 to 20.

An electric cable is cut into pieces of different lengths. The lengths have been plotted below to the nearest a meter.
How many times longer is the longest piece of cable than the shortest piece?
If the main cable was cut into the same number of pieces so that they all have the same length, what would the length of each piece be?
The given line plot shows the lengths of different line segments measured by a student using a ruler to the nearest of an inch.
How many times greater in length is the longest line segment than the smallest one?
By how much is the longest line segment longer than the smallest one?
- A an inch
- B of an inch
- C of an inch
- D of an inch
- E of an inch
Determine the total of the lengths measured.
During a relay race, team members ran different distances, as shown on the line plot below. (Distances are given to the nearest of a mile.)
One team member ran further than the others. How many miles did he run?
- A miles
- B miles
- C10 miles
- D11 miles
- E miles

Which of the descriptions is correct for the distribution represented by the diagram?
- AThe distribution has a gap from 6 to 18.
- BThe distribution is symmetric.
- CThe distribution has an outlier at 10.
- DThe distribution has a peak at 26.
- EThe distribution has a cluster from 28 to 32.
The line plot shows the time taken by different students to run a mile. (Timings given to the nearest of a minute.)
Find the time taken by the fastest student to finish the race.

- B7 min
- C6 min
- D7 min
- E6 min
Find the time taken by the slowest student to finish the race.
- A6 min

- A1 min
- B1 min
- C2 min
- D1 min
- E1 min
