# How do I record and display data?

## How can I count and display data?

A **tally** is a quick and easy way to record what you are counting.

- Draw a
**line**like a 1 to mark each number you count. - When you get to
**5**, draw a**diagonal line**across the first four lines - Making
**groups of 5**like this makes it easier to count your tally later.

## How can I show what I have counted?

A **table** shows:

**what you have counted**on the**left****how many**of each thing there are on the**right**as a**number**

A **bar graph** shows:

**what you have counted along the bottom**and**numbers up the left**- the number of each thing is shown by a bar
- the
**height of the each bar**shows**how many of each thing**there are

A **pie chart** shows a **total number** as a **circle**

- the circle is divided into
**different slices for different things** - the
**bigger the slice**the**bigger the number**of things
