1,500 plants

Work Step by Step

The blue bar for the February 2013 rises to 7, and Multiply 7 by 1000 because the label on the left side of the graph says in thousands 7,000. So, in the February 2013, there were 7,000 plants shipped. The green bar for the February 2012 rises to 5.5, and Multiply 5.5 by 1000 because the label on the left side of the graph says in thousands 5,500. So, in the February 2012, there were 5,500 plants shipped. To find how more plants were shipped in February of 2013 than in February of 2012 we need to Subtract 5,500 from 7,000 = 7,000 - 5,500 = 1,500 plants
