The two charts represent what is the rate of participation of people at cinemas, theme parks and sport events in the year 2009 and how much the public spent both for a single and a family ticket. Overall, while sport showed the lowest level of attendance, cinemas were by far the most favourite entertainment venue and the cheapest one as well. In contrast, prices to the football games were the highest. In the whole year, the number of tickets sold for sport events were less than 200,000; this can be related to the high prices, especially regarding football. Indeed, costs for football games go from a lower of $71 to $75. On the other side, much cheaper are the tickets to basketball games ($34 per person) and cricket games ($80). Cinemas experienced the highest rate of attendance in one year (more than 1,000,000) and this can be thanks to the fact that 1 ticket costs only $15 while a family ticket $55. On the other side, theme parks proved to be almost as pricey as sport events, with the cost for a single ticket of $70 and a family ticket of $210.

The two charts show the number of people who went to cinemas, theme parks and sport events in the year 2009 and how much the public spent on these activities for both a single and a family ticket. Overall, while sport showed the lowest level of attendance, cinemas were by far the most favourite entertainment venue and the cheapest one as well. In contrast, prices to the three types of football games were the highest. Over the whole year, the number of tickets sold for sport events was less than 200,000; this can be related to the high prices, especially regarding football. Indeed, costs for football games ranged from $71 to $75. However, much cheaper were the tickets to basketball games ($34 per person) and cricket games ($24). Cinemas experienced the highest rate of attendance during the year (more than 1,000,000) and this can be attributed to the fact that a ticket cost only $15, while a family ticket was just $55. In contrast, theme parks proved to be almost as pricey as sport events, with the cost of $70 for a single ticket and $210 for a family ticket. The annual attendance was around 350,000.
A good attempt. I am not sure you should 'explain' the figures. It might simply be that there aren't many football games for people to attend. You don't refer to the different types of football games. In the question I am not really sure about the point of including the family ticket prices. The only significant matter is that the only real saving is for theme parks, but that becomes a maths question! While writing about this sort of thing is ok, it is probably best to use actual questions. Have you done all the ones in the recent Cambridge books?
