Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So if I had to redraw it, I would increase the graph of September by 1 and decrease the graph of October by 1 to make the gap not seem so great?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8the step up from the first to the second LOOKS like it's about half the height of the first HOWEVER if you look at the numbers on the scale you can see that the change is only about a 2% increase. This is a 'trick' often used by advertisers  note that the chart scale does not start at 0 try drawing it with a scale starting at 0
