Place an arabic numeral, centered on the bottom of the pages that have a displayed page number. The pages with displayed numbers are all pages except the the title page and first page of the introduction. Graphics Number all tables and figures consecutively (Table 1, Figure 1) Give each table and figure a descriptive title. Refer to each table and figure in the text and explain key points. (Use numbers: Figure 1 shows. . .) Position graphics just after the first point of reference in the manuscript. Combine graphics with text rather than appending them to the end of the report. Use labels to identify elements of the graphic.
