We used a scatter plot for the first graph because it was the easiest way to show this large number of data. We used a bar graph to show how much that song was downloaded. We used a scatter plot to show the number of people in attendance during the X Games over time. We used a pie chart to show the percent that each song was at number one.
The first graph plotted the name of the comic book and how much it sold. The second graph we displayed the number of times each song was number one in the charts. The third graph we showed how the number of people that attended the X Games changed over the past years. The last graph we used a pie chart to show the percent of how long each song was number one.
