    Is the information we are getting from everyone giving us the same results? Look at one of your graphs.

    Which shape has the tallest bar in each graph? The bar that is the tallest tells us that is the shape that supports the most mass. Which shape has the shortest bar? This bar is for the shape that supports the least mass.

 

Now look at all of the graphs you made.

For all of your graphs, does the same pillar shape have the tallest bar? The tallest bar doesn't have to be the same height in all the graphs. The tallest bar just has to be for the same shape in all of the graphs. In our example, all three graphs have the middle bar as the highest bar on the graph. If the same shape has the tallest bar in each of the graphs, this tells you that in each test the same shape of pillar always supports the most mass.
