Understand You need to find the number of classes that chose a lion and the number of
           classes that chose an eagle. Then find the difference.

Plan          Make a frequency table of the data.

Solve         Draw a table with three columns as
              shown. In the first column, list each
              mascot. Then complete the table by                      School Mascot
              indicating the frequency or number of          Mascot      Tally Frequency
                                                            bear        ||∕||        5
              votes each mascot received.
                                                            lion        ||∕|| ||∕|| 10
                                                            tiger       ||∕|| |      6
              10 classes chose a lion and 4 classes         eagle       ||||         4
              chose an eagle. So, 10 − 4 = 6 more
              classes chose a lion than an eagle.

Check         If you go back to the list, there should be 10 classes that chose a lion and 4
              classes that chose an eagle. So, an answer of 6 classes is correct.
