# Subdivided / Component Bar Diagrams

sponsored links

The Sub Divided / Component bar diagrams are used to represent data in which the total magnitude (bar) is divided into different parts or components. In these type of diagrams, first they make simple bars for each class taking total magnitude in that class and then divide these simple bars into parts in the ratio of various components. With an example we shall try to understand the Concept.

Assume that you have to give the data of the production of vehicles of 3 companies (name them P, Q and R) over the years 1994 to 2000.

The questions will be like this. What is the difference between the production of Q in the years 1997 and 1999 ? (followed by some options)

Sol :

The Production of Q in  1997 is (40 -17.5) = 22.5 thousand.

The Production of Q in 1999 is (32.5-12.5) = 20 thousand.

The Difference = 22500 - 20000 = 2500

So, the answer is 2500.

1. as given above it is expected to subtract 17.5 from 40.we can also think it as 18.how can i overcome this confusion

2. how can we know that it is 32.5 or something else

3. ese bar graph fst time dekhe mene bt nice.. atleast dekhe to shi.. thankeww..

4. Great 1... thank you

5. That was the most sensible calculation. Thanks for sharing, however i have a question too. How did you concluded that was 17.5 for the year1997. It can be 18.5 or 16.5?

6. Its very useful tips

7. scale:1/4=2.5

8. what will be the value of Q in 1994?
1)15
2)20
please tell.

9. what will be the value of Q in 1994?
