|Algebra and Functions||Interpreting graphs|
|CAHSEE Math||Statistics, Data, and Probability II|
|Statistics||Charts, Graphs, and Tables|
And here are the potential options…
Can we read a graph? We’ll see...
We have to just go through the potential answers one by one.
A. “Over the course of the entire week, Bob spent more time playing sports than Ben.”
So clearly we’re gonna need to add the total amount of time spent by each to answer this
question – let’s just make a little table:
We can just add the numbers –
and boom - A is correct.
And really, we could have just looked at the graph…
…Bob smokes Ben for minutes practiced every day of the week except Saturday and only “loses”
by a small amount that day…
…so just a quick glance could have told us that A was our guy.
There’s not even a need to test the rest. We can save our energy.
In case we want to, you know… play soccer.
