Graphs have the ability to compare and reveal a trend, so it is better to represent data in a graph rather than in a table. In solutions of NCERT for class 8 introduction to graphs, you will find different types of graphs like- Bar graph, Histogram, Pie graph ( or pie chart or a circle graph), Line graph, and Linear graph in the 3 exercises. These different type of graphs that you will use depends on your data and need. If data changes continuously with the time you will be using a line graph. You can use histogram(bar graph) to show data in any intervals. There are 3 exercises with 65 questions in NCERT the textbook. All these questions are explained in CBSE NCERT solutions for class 8 maths chapter 15 introduction to graphs which will build basic knowledge about the graphs. You can get NCERT solutions from class 6 to 12 to by clicking on the above link. Here you will get solutions of three exercises of this chapter.
