Graphs show how values change over time or compare different items. Look at the labels on the x and y axes to understand what the graph is showing. Know the key points of the graph, like highest and lowest values.
Interpreting Graphs

Graph: A graph is a visual representation of data that uses points, lines, bars, or other symbols to show the relationships between different pieces of information. Axes: The x-axis and y-axis of a graph are the two lines that intersect at a right angle and divide the graph into four sections. The x-axis is usually the horizontal axis and the y-axis is usually the vertical axis. Interpreting Graphs: Interpreting graphs requires the ability to recognize patterns, trends, and relationships between data points that are displayed on the graph. It also requires an understanding of the context in which the data was collected and what it represents.

Graphs are believed to be the oldest form of data visualisation, with the earliest known example dating back to 1857. Interpreting a graph can be much faster than reading a table of data. This is because the human eye can take in information much more quickly when presented in a visual way. A graph can provide detailed information to identify patterns and trends that would otherwise be difficult to spot in a large set of data.
