Presentation Transcript

The table shows the sports participation of students at a school.

A Legend tells you what each bar represent.

EXAMPLE 2

Making a Double Bar Graph

SOLUTION

To make a double bar graph of the data, start by drawing bars for the boys.Then draw bars for the girls. Be sure to choose a scale that works for all the data.

The line graph shows a sharp increase from 1999 to 2000, and a continued decrease from 2000 to 2003. Then the number of entries increased slightly from 2003 to 2004.

EXAMPLE 3

Interpreting a Line Graph

Hot Air Balloons

The line graph shows the number of entries in the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta from 1999 to 2004. What conclusions can you make about the line graph?

Use the table to make a line graph of the number of cellular phone subscribers from 1998 through 2003. What can you conclude?

STEP 1

Choose horizontal and vertical axes.

EXAMPLE 4

Making a Line Graph

Cell Phones

SOLUTION

Years from 1998 through 2003 will be shown on the horizontal axis. The greatest number of millions of subscribers is 159. So, start the vertical axis at 0 and end with 200, using increments of 40.

STEP phone subscribers from 2

Draw and label the graph.

Plot a point for each year. The connect the points with line segment.

Include evenly spaced horizontal and vertical gridlines.

The number of cell phone subscribers climbed steadily from 1998 to 2003
