Problem statement: Write a python program using matplotlib.pyplot library to create a bar chart.

A bar chart or bar graph is a chart or graph that presents categorical data with rectangular bars.

Program:

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

x = [2,4,6,8,10]
y=[3,9,11,2,6]
plt.bar(x,y,label ='Bars')

plt.xlabel('X-axis')
plt.ylabel('Y-axis')
plt.title('Bar Graph1')
plt.legend()
plt.show()

Output

bar chart program output in Python

Explanation:

Python library matplotlib.pyplot is used to draw the above chart. Two random variables x and y are taken with random values. The bar function plots a bar plot. The bar function takes 2 arguments i.e. x and y and a label variable gives the label to the plot. To name the axes xlabel and ylabel functions are used and to give the title to the plot the title function is used. To show the legend the legend function is used and finally to show the plot the show function.
