### Beverly's Graphing Post

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

-Distorting the scale.

-Distorting the visuals.

-Distorting the size of the bars.

3.a) The following chart shows Pizza Sub Sales over a month. What 2 graphs would show the information accurately?
A: I think that the bar graph and the line graph would show the information more clearly.

3.b) If you were selling Pizza Subs would you continue? How does your graph explain your answer.
A:Yes because each week the amount of items sold keep increasing.

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?

A: I would choose the line graph because you can tell that the line is going up which means that more people are buying more healthy choices.

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