Line Graph
Bar graphs are used to compare changes between different groups. Line graphs are used to compare two variables.
The data which changes over a period of time can be
displayed through a line graph.
In line graph:
● Points are plotted on the
graph related to two variables
● Points are joined by the
line segments.
How to Construct a Line Graph?
Steps of construction of line graph:
On a graph, draw two lines perpendicular to each other
intersecting at O. The horizontal line is xaxis and vertical line is yaxis.
Mark points at equal intervals along xaxis and write the names of the data
items whose values are to be marked.
Along the yaxis, choose an appropriate scale considering
the given values.
Now, make the points
Join each point with the successive point using a ruler. Thus, a line graph is obtained
