A bar graph (also called bar chart) is a graphical display of data using bars of different heights.

The bars may be drawn vertically or horizontally. The gaps separating the bars are always equal.

**Example:** A survey of 100 people asked them “which is the nicest fruit?”

Fruit | People |

Apple | 30 |

Orange | 20 |

Banana | 10 |

Mango | 5 |

Melons | 15 |

Berries | 20 |

Draw a vertical or horizontal bar chart to illustrate the above data.

**Nicest Fruits**

From the bar chart, it is obvious that the group of people think Apples are the nicest.
