       Graphs
              Line graphs, the independent variable is
              plotted on the horizontal (x) axis, and the
              dependent variable is plotted on the vertical
              (y) axis
              Circle graphs show a fixed quantity using
              slices representing parts of the whole.
              Bar graphs represent quantitative data using
              bars.
