• A line graph is used to show changes over time A stem-and-leaf plot arranges data by place value A bar graph is used to compare data about different groups The data shows the number of hours different kinds of animals sleep each day. The data do not show changes over time, and some important info is not shown by the stem-and-leaf plot. So, the bar graph is the best choice. Would a circle graph be good for the data? No, because the data do not show a whole made up of parts.
