**Understanding the Concepts of Tabulation**

Tabulation or a table chart is an easy way of organizing complex or large volumes of data across multiple categories or types and representing them together to draw valuable conclusions from them.

A table represents even a large amount of data in an engaging, easy to read, and coordinated manner. A table chart uses a set of data arranged in rows and columns.

The following are the important table charts concepts:

**1. Speed Maths**

Quicker calculation techniques are the key to solving any data interpretation question faster. A quick calculation can be mastered by working on 2 things:

**1.1 Memory Based**

There are a few things we need to know by heart to do the calculations faster, ex - Squares of numbers from 1 to 40, 20 x 20 multiplication table, etc.

**For Example:**

Squares of numbers from 1 to 40, 20 x 20 multiplication table, cubes of numbers from 1-12, powers of numbers from 2^{1} to 2^{12}, etc.

**1.2 Calculation Based Shortcuts**

Few speed math techniques can be learned to perform calculations faster.

**For Example:**

2 x 2 multiplication, finding squares of numbers, finding square roots quickly, etc.

**2. Averages**

There are a few average-based questions asked in most of the tabulation sets, solve this effectively by adding the numbers and dividing them, and quick calculation of averages using approximation techniques will definitely help.

**3. Percentages**

There are specific percentage based questions asked in most of the tabulation sets, like 'what percentage of A is B', 'A% of B,' or 'percentage change'. To solve this effectively we need to be very good at calculating percentages.

**4. Ratios**

Some of the questions from the tabulation question sets are based on ratios. These can be easily solved using approximation techniques, divisibility tests, and a basic foundational understanding of ratios. Percentage concepts will also be a great help in solving tabulation question sets.
