# Statistics (pictograms, bar charts & line graphs): Leopard and Tiger

## The Problem

An Amur leopard has set off from a mountain cave to cross its territory. It is travelling at a constant **5 miles per hour. **After an hour of travelling, it rests for **an hour**. It continues on in this manner.

**How far will the leopard have travelled after eight hours?**

**Can you create a table to show the distance travelled by the leopard in this time?**

**Can you use your table to construct a line graph that shows the distance travelled by the leopard? **

The Amur leopard (Panthera pardus orientalis) can run at speeds of up to 37 miles per hour. They can’t maintain this for very long though.

## Visualising the Problem and Getting Started

Discuss with a talk partner how you might complete the line graph below to show how far the leopard had travelled after 8 hours.
