How Do Line Plots Display Data?
There are number of ways we can visualize the numeric data. Graphs, charts, and plotting on the number line are some tools that help us in displaying the numeric data visually. One common and easy way to visualize the data is through line plots.
A line plot is also known as the dot plots and it uses a number line to visually display the numeric data. It is a way to display the frequencies of the numbers.
**Step 1** - Arrange the Data - The first step to display the numeric data on a number line is to arrange the data. To know the frequency of each number, you can arrange the numbers in an ascending manner. Disorganized data may lead to inaccurate plotting.
**Step 2** - Use a Dot or a Cross for Representation - The next step is to choose between a dot or a cross. You then have to mark a cross or a dot above or below the number to represent its frequency.

#### Homework Sheets

We shift focus a little on this skill and move it to containers and volume readings that directly relate here.

- Homework 1 - How much volume would the juice take up?
- Homework 2 - If David has 40 mangoes and took 1/4 of the mangoes to make juice. How many mangoes did he use?
- Homework 3 - Smith is very fond of rose juice. Rose juice consists of rose petals and water. For every serving of rose juice you need to use 30 ml of rose juice. You always match the amount of rose juice with 1/7 the amount water.
