Key Question 2:
- To determine the data line graph is the best choice.
- Because, Line graphs are used to chart changes over short and long time periods. When there are little changes, line graphs are preferable to bar graphs. Line graphs may also be used to compare changes in more than one group during the same time period.
- to show the total number of each type of movie (horror, action, comedy, etc.) in your movie collection it would be best to use Line Graph
- To show the marks in grade 12 workplace math, it would be best to use Bar Graph
- For this data, Column graph is the best. Because Column charts are excellent for displaying data changes over time or presenting comparisons between things. Categories are generally grouped along the horizontal axis and values along the vertical axis in column charts.
- For this data, Bar Chart is the best. Because Bar graphs are used to compare data across groups or to follow changes over time. When attempting to assess change over time, however, bar graphs work best when the changes are big.
- For this data, line Graph is the best. Line graphs are used to chart changes over short and long time periods. When there are little changes, line graphs are preferable to bar graphs. Line graphs may also be used to compare changes in more than one group during the same time period.
