tables, carefully read the table title andthe column headings. The title of the tablegives you a general idea of the type andoften the purpose of the information pre-sented. The column headings tell you thespecific kind of information given in thatcolumn. Both the table title and the col-umn headings are usually very straightforward.
There may be four types of graphs.
Circle graphs are used toshow how various sectors are in thewhole. Circle graphs are sometimescalled Pie Charts. Circle graphs usuallygive the percent that each sector receivesIn such representation the total quantityin question is distributed over a totalangle of 360°.While using circle graphs to find ratiosof various sectors, don't find theamounts each sector received and thenthe ratio of the amounts. Find the ratioof the percents, which is much quicker.
Line graphs are used toshow how a quantity changes continu-ously. If the line goes up, the quantity isincreasing; if the line goes down, the quan-tity is decreasing; if the line is horizon-tal, the quantity is not changing.
Given quantities can be com-pared by the height or length of a bargraph. A bar graph can have either ver-tical or horizontal bars. You can comparedifferent quantities or the same quantityat different times. In bar graph the datais discrete. Presentation of data in thisform makes evaluation of parameterscomparatively very easy.
4)Cumulative Graphs :
You can compareseveral catagories by a graph of thecumulative type. These are usually baror line graphs where the height of thebar or line is divided up proportionallyamong different quantities.
