  1. Silver challenge:
    The busiest was 10 am because it had the most votes on the bar chart.
    Gold challenge:
    The cafe was busiest at 1pm so they can have a rest or a break from all they done. The number for how many people have been in the cafe at 1pm is about 32.

    1) The café was busy at 1pm because people wanted to have a break from the activities, and have tea or coffee before they continue with what they were doing.

    2) By adding all the people in or around 1 o’clock in the leisure centre the total was.

    43 + 20 + 39 + 32 = 134 people using the leisure centre at 1pm.

    3)The leisure centre want to collect information about which activity is the most popular and which is least popular, so they could change something.

    By using this information they could collect the number of people visiting the centre and they could increase or decrease price of the leisure centre entry fee and it activities.
