  • 421 0011 0010 1010 1101 0001 0100 1011 How to set up your graph! Y Axis (This is for your dependent variable)
  • 421 0011 0010 1010 1101 0001 0100 1011 How to set up your graph! X Axis (This is for your independent variable)
  • 421 0011 0010 1010 1101 0001 0100 1011 TAILS TT - Title Teachers’s Favorite Singer

The interval is just as important as the scale Choose an interval that lets you make the graph as large as possible for your paper and data
