A line plot provides an ordered display of all values in a data set and shows the frequency of data on a number line. Line plots are used to show the spread of the data, to include clusters (groups of data points) and gaps (large spaces between data points), and quickly identify the range, mode, and any extreme data values.
Create a graph. Mark the data range intervals on the x-axis (horizontal axis) with no space between the categories. Mark frequency on the y-axis (vertical axis), also in equal intervals.
Plot the data. For each data range category (bin), draw a horizontal line at the appropriate frequency or marker. Then, create a vertical bar for that category reaching up to the marked frequency. Do this for each data range category (bin).
Bins should be all the same size.
If possible, the number of bins created should be a factor the number of data values (e.g., a histogram representing 20 data values might have 4 or 5 bins).
