# NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 9 Data Handling

NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 9 Data Handling: The collection of some valuable information is known as data. It is done on the basis of the need for a particular case to make any decision. In daily life, you must have seen different data like in newspapers- business analysis, in cricket match comparison of the score of two teams, runs scored by batsman, number of total balls faced by batsman, number of dot balls, number of fours and sixes by batsman or team, strike rate, etc. What is the purpose of this data which they have accumulated and how to handle it? In CBSE NCERT solutions for class 6 maths chapter 9 data handling, you will get the answer to the above question. In the digital world, data is new oil which has much wider use. Any technology like machine learning or Artificial intelligence has no use if the data is not available. The information or so-called data is collected to analyze and make important decisions based on the need. In the above example of the batsman, data is collected to analyze his performance and make decisions for further matches. In solutions of NCERT for class 6 maths chapter 9 data handling, you will get many questions related to collecting data and use it to make some important outcomes. Also, you will learn to represent data in tabular form using tally marks, using pictogram, and to draw a bar graph from the collected data. From the pictogram and bar graph, you can get information like the minimum and maximum value of data, in which year minimum occurred, etc. There are 16 questions in 4 exercises given in the textbook. You will get detailed explanations of all these questions in CBSE NCERT solutions for class 6 maths chapter 9 data handling. You can get NCERT solutions from class 6 to 12 by clicking on the above link.

Let's understand this chapter with the help of an example:-

The above bar graph gives information about wheat sold by industry in the year 1998 to 2002. In the bar graph, the horizontal line represents the year and the vertical line represents wheat sold in thousand tonnes and 1unit = 5000 tonnes. It is clear from the graph the wheat sold is maximum in the year 2002 and the amount is 30 units=$30\times5=150\ thousand\ tonnes=150,000\ tonnes$. Similarly, we can calculate the amount of wheat sold in another year also. The minimum amount is sold in the year 1998. There are 4 exercises in the chapter which are listed below.

Observe this pictograph and answer the following questions :

(a) Which class has the minimum number of girl students?

(b) Is the number of girls in Class VI less than the number of girls in Class V?

(c) How many girls are there in Class VII?

(a) Class VIII has the minimum number of girls.

Number of girls in class VIII  = $\frac{3}{2}\times 4=6$

(b) Number of girls in class VI = $4\times 4=16$

Number of girls in class V = $\frac{5}{2}\times 4=10$

Therefore the number of girls in Class VI is not less than the number of girls in Class V.

(c) Number of girls in class VII =$3\times 4=12$

Observe the pictograph and answer the following questions :

(a) How many bulbs were sold on Friday?
