• If 1/4 had 8 x's, then 8 people would have eaten 1/4 of a choc bar? Hope this helps.
• I’ve been watching these videos for help but they make no sense
• To answer a line plot...Well you must know the question. EX: How much people had 1/4 of a chocolate bar?

You look at 1/4 and see it had 8 X's on it.
So, I would say, 8 people eat 1/4 of a chocolate bar. THIS IS FOR 'RICHARD.BRIAN' AND OTHER PEOPLE WHO NEED HELP WITH THIS PROBLEM.
