Pie Charts - Parts Of The Whole Charts
by: Dee Reavis

Pie charts are a handy graphical form. Their main purpose is to show you what all the parts of everything are. Here is an example:

If I were to look at my monthly budget, It might look like this:

rent $700
food 200
utilities 175
entertainment 100
cell phone 80
insurance 110
debt payment 150
savings 100

total $1615


From this you could construct a pie chart that would give you a visual representation of how much each part of the budget contributes to the whole budget. The pieces of the pie could be labeled with the actual dollar amounts or the percentages of the whole.

Making Graphs And Charts
by: Dee Reavis

The original way of making graphs was with a pencil paper and ruler. Graph paper made it easier, by giving you a measured form to construct your graphs on.

Today most graphs are made using a computer. The most universal software on the computer for making graphs is Microsoft Excel or some other spreadsheet program. This website provides a simple method for making line graphs and pie graphs.

How will i enter the data in making the line graph?

by Lita
(Philippines)

I want to make a line graph but the problem is I don't know how to enter my data in distance and in elevation. Kindly please help me on this how to start the line graph.

Answer

In answer to your question, I made a short video that demonstrates how to enter data into the line graph with your own numbers. Go to Line Graph to see the video.

As for your specific question on distance and elevation data, I would assume that you want to see how elevation increases or decreases as you increase the distance from a starting point. So you would start by zeroing out all the example data with a series of tab deletes. Then you would enter your distance data where the year data was before. Finally you would enter the elevation data that corresponds with the distance data. Congratulations you have your graph.
