4 1.1 Interpreting Graphs Before You compared quantities. Now You ll use graphs to analyze data. Why? So you can make conclusions about data, as in Example 1. KEY VOCABULARY bar graph, p. 3 data, p. 3 frequency table, p. 4 histogram, p. 4 Volcanoes The bar graph at the right shows the number of historically active volcanoes in four countries. Which country has the most historically active volcanoes? A bar graph is a type of graph in which the lengths of bars are used to represent and compare dataa in categories. Dataa are facts, numbers, or numerical information. Historically active volcanoes Volcanoes Canada Chile Mexico Country U.S. E XAMPLE 1 Interpreting a Bar Graph Use the bar graph above about volcanoes. Answer the question or explain why you can t answer the question using the graph. a. Which country has the most historically active volcanoes? b. Which country has the most volcanic eruptions in a given year? READING MATH Read carefully to make sure you don t misinterpret the graph. Just because the U.S. has the most active volcanoes of the countries shown does not mean it has the most in the world. SOLUTION a. The vertical axis in the bar graph is labeled Historically active volcanoes, so the tallest bar represents the country with the most historically active volcanoes. Because the United States has the tallest bar, it has the most historically active volcanoes. b. Having more historically active volcanoes doesn t necessarily mean having more eruptions, so you can t answer this question from the bar graph. GUIDED PRACTICE for Example 1 Use the bar graph above about historically active volcanoes. 1. About how many more historically active volcanoes does Chile have than Mexico? 2. Which country has the least number of historically active volcanoes? 3. About how many historically active volcanoes do Canada, Mexico, and the U.S. have altogether? 1.1 Interpreting Graphs 3

KEY VOCABULARY formula, p. 32 perimeter, p. 32 area, p. 32 A formula is an equation that relates two or more quantities such as perimeter, length, and width. The perimeterr of a figure is the sum of the lengths of its sides. The amount of surface the figure covers is called its area. a Perimeter is measured in linear units such as feet. Area is measured in square units such as square feet, written as ft 2. You may have found the formula for area in the Investigation on p. 31. area perimeter length width KEY CONCEPT For Your Notebook Perimeter and Area Formulas Rectangle Diagram Perimeter Area w P 5 l 1w 1 l 1w P 5 or A 5 lw l P 5 2l 1 2w Square s P 5 4s A 5 s 2 s E XAMPLE 1 Finding Perimeter and Area Find the perimeter and area of the rectangle. 5 ft READING The mark tells you that an angle is a right angle, which measures 908.
