### Answers

(a) (i) Determine the actual number of inmates per prison.

The actual number of inmates per prison

Murchison bay                  484 + 1,129                          = 1613

Luzira upper                       211 + 69 + 1776                  = 2056

Arua                                      192 + 361                             = 553

Rukungiri                             47 + 203                                = 250

Kumi                                      19 + 58                                  = 77

Jinja main                            249+338 + 33                      = 620

Table showing the planned and actual inmates per prison

(ii) Draw a group (comparative) bar graph to represent the planned and actual number of inmates for prisons shows in the table
