The expenditure (in 10 crores of rupees) on health by the Government of India during the various five-year plans is shown below: .
Construct a bar graph to represent the above data.
To represent the given data by a vertical bar graph, we first draw horizontal and vertical axes.
Let us consider that the horizontal and vertical axes represent the years and the expenditures on health in 10 Crores rupees respectively. We have to draw 6 bars of different lengths given in the table.
At first, we mark 6 points in the horizontal axis at equal distances and erect rectangles of the same width at these points. The heights of the rectangles are proportional to the expenditures on health by the government of India in different years.
The vertical bar graph of the given data is following:
