|Class 7 Maths Data Handling||Introduction|
Data is a collection of numbers gathered to give some information. It could be the marks of students, shopping done in an year, attendance of students, weight of some individuals and so on. For eg the marks of students in the class or the amount of various goods shopped from the market.
The collection, recording and presentation of data help us organize our experiences and draw inferences from them. Before collecting data it is important to know what we would use it for. Proper organization of data is very important since it ensures that data is easy to understand and interpret.
