Question 1. The following table shows the number of patients discharged from a hospital with HIV diagnosis in different years:

Years20022003200420052006
Number of Patients150170195225230

Represent the information by a graph.

Solution:

From the question as we know that, 

The number of patients – is a dependent variable.

Year – is an independent variable.



Take years on x-axis

and Number of patients on y – axis

Choose the following scale:

X – axis: 2 cm = 1 year

Y – axis: 1 cm = 10 patients

Consider that on the x-axis, origin (O) represents 2001 and on the y-axis, origin (O) represents 120, 

i.e. O (2001, 120).

Now, Plot 

(2002, 150), 

(2003, 170), 

(2004, 195), 

(2005, 225), 

(2006, 230). 

Join these points in the following graph as shown below.

Plot a graph to illustrate this information.

Solution:

From the question as we know that, 



Year – is an independent variable 

Quantity of rice grown is a dependent variable. 

So, take

Year on X – axis

Quantity of rice grown on Y – axis 

Choose following scale:

X – axis: 2 cm = 1 year

Y – axis: 1 cm = 20 quintals

Consider that the origin O represents the coordinates (1999, 160).

i.e. O (1999,160)

Now, Plot

Plot the graph of this information.

Solution:

From the question as we know that,  

The number of persons – is an independent variable

Time taken – is a dependent variable.

So, take 

The number of persons on the X – axis 

Time taken on the Y – axis.

Choose following scale:

Solution:



From the question as we know that, 

Length of a side – is an independent variable

Area of the square – is a dependent variable.

So, take 

Length of a side on the X – axis 

Area of the square on the Y – axis.

Choose following scale:

Solution:

(i) From the question as we know that, 

Time – is an independent variable 

Temperature – is a dependent variable. 

So, take 

Time on the X – axis
