- Bar Graph

*Advantage*: The advantage of a bar graph is that it is best for comparing data across

categories.

*Disadvantage*: The disadvantage of using a bar graph is that you may not use the right interval or the accurate numbers that goes with your data.

- Double Bar Graph

*Advantage*: The advantage of using a double bar graph is that it is best for comparing two

sets of data across categories.

*Disadvantage*: The disadvantage of using a double bar graph is that you may use the

wrong intervals.

- Line Graph

*Advantage*: It is best for showing data over time.

*Disadvantage*: The disadvantage of using a line graph is that you can only use the data that changes over time.

- Pictograph

*Advantage*: It is best for comparing data that can be easily counted.

*Disadvantage*: The disadvantage of using a pictograph is that you can only use pictograph if the data is even.

- Circle Graph

*Advantage*: It is best for comparing data to whole categories.

*Disadvantage*: The disadvantage of using a circle graph is that it takes a long time to make and very hard to construct.

**2.) 3 Ways how a graph can be misleading**

*** Distorting Scale**: putting a break on the y-axis.

*

**Distorting Visuals**: making one data larger than the rest of data. *

**Distorting Size of A Bar**: making one bar wider than others.**3a.)**

**The following chart shows Pizza Sub Sales**

**ove**

**r a month. What 2 graphs would show the information accurately?**

**- I would use a line graph and a bar graph to show The Pizza Sub Sales over the month.**

**3b.)**

**If you were selling Pizza Subs would you continue? How does your graph explain your answer.**

- I chose these graphs because it will show that the sales are getting higher and higher over time.

**4.) Below you see 2 different examples of graphs showing healthy choices sold at the canteen. If you had to convince Mrs. Mota that we should continue selling healthy choices which graph would you choose?**

- I would choose the line graph. I chose the line graph because its easy for Mrs. Mota to see that it goes higher and higher over time. If I chose the pictograph, you have to count and count until you figure the amount of each data.

**4a.)**

**Change each graph so that your information looks even MORE impressive. You may not change the data just the graphs.**
