# Using Tally Charts To Make Graphs Worksheets

How Can Tally Charts Be Used to Make Graphs? When you start learning statistics, a term that you will frequently come across is tally. So, what are tallies? Have you ever seen a data chart that is used to create a graph? It includes the object and a number that represents its frequencies, and you see a few lines beside it? Well, these vertical lines are what we term as tallies. It is a quick and efficient way to collect data. It is a faster method as compared to writing out words or figures. Moreover, it allows data collection in sub-groups which makes data analysis much easier. A single vertical line represents one unit, and after four, the fifth line is drawn horizontally, which cuts the four vertical lines. It helps you count the frequency, which then represented on the 1-axis of the graph.
