# Problem of the Week Problem B and Solution Ingrid’s Vehicles

## Problem

While waiting in a parking lot, Ingrid began counting vehicles. She discovered that there were $$22$$ cars, $$16$$ SUVs, and $$3$$ trucks.

1. Create a pictograph, a broken line graph, and a bar graph to represent this data.

2. To best communicate this distribution, which graph do you prefer? Why?

## Solution

1. A pictograph, a broken line graph, and a bar graph are below.

Pictograph:

Note: The pictograph could be condensed by unitizing. For example, each image could be used to represent to two vehicles.

Broken line graph:

Bar graph:

2. Answers may vary. The bar graph best communicates this distribution as it compares the numbers of vehicles most clearly and concisely.
