Transcript

Now let\'s look at a few more examples of these two important types of graphs. Let\'s first look at a fascinating bar graph about the best-selling games in the U.S. titled \'Game Crazy.\' Which game is the most popular game in U.S. history, and how many units have been sold? Looking at the graph, we can see that Uno has the tallest bar, meaning it is the most popular game. The bar for Uno is almost two million. A good estimate for the number of Uno games sold is 1.9 million.

Which game has sold almost 1.3 million games? Looking at the bar on the left, 1.3 million would almost be between one million and 1.5 million. As I follow a line over between these two values, the Jenga bar appears to be closest to 1.3 million.
