14.2 In a certain town water is consumed as follows:

gardening 32%

laundry and dishes 15%

toilets 28%

bathing 20%

cooking and drinking 5%

  • Represent the information by means of a pie graph

14.3 During the election of prefects at Sunshine Primary School, Stephanie received 80 votes, Tamara received 120 votes, Buck 60 votes and Sean 140 votes.

  • Draw a pictogram to indicate the position of the votes.

14.4 Draw a column/bar graph to represent the sales of cool drink during the year:

Lemonade 22 000 litres

Fanta 38 000 litres

Coke 45 500 litres

Cream soda 20 500 litres

Tab 43 250 litres

  • The sales of which cool drink are the closest to the average sales of all the cool drinks?





  • Can you show the following information on the same graph?

Jan Feb Mar Apr May

Jan Feb Mar Apr May
Price of Cheddar cheese per kg R12.50 R15.00 R12.50 R17.50 R22.50
Price of Sweet milk cheese per kg R17.50 R22.50 R12.50 R20.00 R25.00

(Hint: draw up a double column graph!)

  • Why, do you think, does the price vary from month to month?




  • How much more would you have paid for Sweet milk cheese in February than in January?

Learning Outcome 4: The learner will be able to use appropriate measuring units, instruments and formulae in a variety of contexts.

Assessment Standard 4.1: We know this when the learner solves problems involving time, including relating time, distance and speed;

Learning Outcome 5: The learner will be able to collect, summarise, display and critically analyse data in order to draw conclusions and make predictions, and to interpret and determine chance variation.

Assessment Standard 5.5: We know this when the learner organises (including grouping where appropriate) and records data using tallies, tables and stem-and-leaf displays;

Assessment Standard 5.8: We know this when the learner draws a variety of graphs by hand/technology to display and interpret data (grouped and ungrouped);

Assessment Standard 5.9: We know this when the learner critically reads and interprets data presented in a variety of ways to draw conclusions and make predictions sensitive.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
