This histogram shows information about the ages of 317 people attending a charity concert. The cost of tickets for children under 15 years of age are half price. If a full price ticket was £18, estimate the total income of all 317 ticket sales.

### 2.

The histogram gives information about the distribution of the heights of some shrubs grown by a garden supplier.

The shrubs are on sale at the following prices:

• Shrubs less than 30cm in height cost £12
• Shrubs greater than 60cm in height cost £36
• All other shrubs cost £24

A pie chart is drawn using the information above to show the number of shrubs in each price category. Calculate, to the nearest degree, the angle in the sector representing shrubs sold for £12.
