- Provide 1 chart or graph for each of the 5 processed sections. This may be a pie or bar chart or a histogram.
- Label the chart or graph clearly.
- Explain why the graph you provided gave a good visual representation of the data.
- Based on your explanation above, identify some specific advantages why, in general, charts and graphs are important in conveying information in a visual format.
