# Max Maths, Year 4, Practice, Reading and making bar graphs (1)

In a Year 4 mathematics practice activity from Max Maths, students are introduced to the concept of interpreting and creating bar graphs. The exercise is designed to help them understand how to read data from a table and represent it accurately in a bar graph format. The task presents a table with information on the number of owners for different car brands: Ford, Toyota, Honda, and Mitsubishi, with the respective owner counts being 4, 8, 6, and 12.

The students are then provided with four different bar graphs, labelled (a), (b), (c), and (d), each purporting to represent the data from the table. Their challenge is to identify which bar graph correctly displays the information. Each bar graph has 'Brand of car' as its horizontal axis and 'Number of owners' as its vertical axis, with the vertical axis marked at intervals of 2, starting from 0 and going up to 12. The students must tick the bar graph that accurately reflects the number of owners for each brand as given in the table, ensuring that each bar's height corresponds to the correct number of car owners for Ford, Toyota, Honda, and Mitsubishi.
