Example Data Interpretation Questions

Practice Question 1


Answer: B

How to get to the answer:

For this question you need to work out the difference for oak and elm wood in the first 3 months

1. Add up the first 3 months of oak wood = 32 + 32 + 38 = 102.

2. Add up the first 3 months of elm wood = 36 + 30 + 31 = 97.

3. To work out the difference you minus the lowest from the highest number = 102 – 97 = 5.

4. So the difference equals 5 (thousand).

Practice Question 2


Answer: B

How to get to the answer:

For this question, you are not given the total; you are only given the number of Science papers, which is 873. Therefore, you will use percentages as a way of working out the overall total.

1. The only number you are given to work with is 873 – which is the number of Science papers published.

2. Multiply 873 by 100% = 87300.

3. You will then use 87300 and divide it by the percentage that was for Science papers (shown in the first pie chart).

4. Science papers were 13% of the overall total.

5. So, 87300 divided by 13 = 6715.

REMEMBER: you can double check you have the correct answer by reversing the question.

6715 divided by 100 and multiplied by 13 = 873.95. Rounded to the nearest whole number = 874.

(Note: 874 is the number you started with!)
