Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0generally, in order to draw the best line of a set of experimental data, we apply the least ssquare method. In order to apply that method, it is necessary to know the uncertainties of the measures of at least a quantity

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think that a factor can be the precision or accuracy, used to make the measures of the quantities involved in our experiment

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we have to keep all the measures, and then we have to apply the formulas about the least squares method

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you need to look at the type of data. is the data categorical or quantitative... it the data is quantitative is it discrete or continuous. is the data nominal or ordinal... so these things determine which is the best graph to use...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the educational section of the Australian Bureau of Statistics have information on types of data and graphs http://www.abs.gov.au/websitedbs/cashome.nsf//Home/Entry+Page.es?opendocument#frombanner=GT its the top item in AC Support hope it helps

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0as an example.... the type of car you drive is categorical data. you could put that into a sector graph or divided bar graph

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this is my example: if the volume of a sample of gas is held constant, then the temperature T of that gas depends on the pressure P of the same gas, so we can write this: \[T = A + BP\] Now we have to make some measures of temperature T of the gas and some measure of the corresponding pressures of that gas. Then using the least square method we can find the values of the coefficient s A and B

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the temperature are measured in celsius degrees, whereas the pressures are measured in mm of Hg

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0from those data we get the subsequent values of the coefficients A and B: A=263.35 B=3.71 as I said before, in order to get those values, we have to apply the least squares method

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but what happens @Michele_Laino if the data is a set of quiz results 15, 30, 40, 100, 98, 55, 65,.... that's a data set... how would you graph them..?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0here's someones elses example of it The best graph i would use is a bar graph between my school work to see which lesson i do most Math, science, LA , SS.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the bar graph is another type of graph. We can use that type of graph when we have to show the distribution of the sample of a population of a school with respect to the subjects teached in that school
