1) Use your note to list the different types of graphs. Please list the advantages and disadvantages of each graph.

Bar Graph- The advantage for bar graph is that they are best for comparing data across categories.

- The disadvantage for bar graph is depending on the interval you can't clearly see the right amount.

Circle Graph- The advantage for circle graph is that they are best for comparing categories to the whole using percents. The sum of the percents in the circle graph is 100%.

-The disadvantage for a circle graph is you have to change the number into a percent.

Pictograph- The advantage for pictograph is that they are best for comparing data that can be easily counted and represented using symbols.

- the disadvantage for a pictograph is it's hard to determine the numbers using symbols.

Line Graph- The advantage for line graph is that they are best for showing changes in data overtime.

- the disadvantage for a line graph is you don't exactly know what the exact number is.

Double Bar Graph- The advantage for double bar graph is that they are best for comparing two sets of data across categories.

- the disadvantage for a double bar graph is depending on the interval you won't know the accurate number.

2) How can graphs be misleading. Show 3 ways.

Distort the size of bars

Distort the scale

Distort the Visual
