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

Bar Graph:

Adv: It compares data and it shows who has the highest or lowest data.

Dis: The intervals can be wrong which it will not be accurate.

Double Bar Graph:

Adv: It compares two sets of data and it shows the difference between the two sets of data.

Dis: Once again the intervals can be wrong which the graph will not be accurate.

Circle Graph:

Adv: It compares data that is part to whole using percents and you can see who has the biggest part.

Dis: It is only best to compare one set of data.

Line Graph:

Adv: It compares data overtime and it is good for showing the difference between the data.

Dis: It can only compare data overtime and it can be misleading.

Picto Graph:

Adv: It is good for comparing data using visuals.

Dis: It can be misleading by making the visuals larger.

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

A pictograph can misleading because sometimes the visuals may be larger than the other set of data which makes it seem that is the exact same as the other set of data when its not.

Hi Liyanah ! I love your post. It was really easy ti understand but when you change the font from big to small it was really hard to read the smaller fonts, so I suggest to make them a little bigger. The pictures was really easy to understand and I learned a lot from your blog post. Thank you :)
