Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Suppose you are going to graph the data in the table below. What data should be represented on each axis, and what would be the appropriate increments? (2 points) Year Profit 2003 $100,000 2004 $55,000 2005 −$45,000 2006 $110,000 2007 $330,000 2008 $800,000 2009 $242,000 2010 −$11,000 2011 $285,000 xaxis: years in increments of 1; yaxis: profit in increments of $50,000 xaxis: profit in increments of $50,000; yaxis: years in increments of 1 xaxis: years in increments of 1; yaxis: profit in increments of $200,000 xaxis: profit in increments of $200,000; yaxis: years in increments of 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, obviously "years in increments of 1" is correct since the years increase bu increments of 1. Next, remember independent variables go on the x axis, and dependent variables go on the y axis.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The amount of money is dependent on the year. Therefore, years (independent) would go on the x axis, and money (dependent) goes on the y. Make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Honestly, determining increments of variables can be a bit tricky for me, but in the past I was taught just to choose whatever makes the most sense to you. So I personally would say 50,000 increments. Is there a particular way your teacher taught you to solve this? (each one generally has their own methods)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think of it this way. Choose the one which will allow you to plot your points easily while not taking up too much (excessive) space on your graph.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So I would choose "xaxis: years in increments of 1; yaxis: profit in increments of $50,000".
