How does Graphing Help You in the Real World? - Graphs plays an important role in mathematics and work as very useful tools even in the real life. These ways of visual representation of numeric data is used even in the Fortune 500 companies to record the data. It is an easy and a less-complicated way to read data. Use of graphs in representing lengthy data, saves the time in analyzing data and in gaining quick insights. Reading graphical data is easy as compared to lengthy reports and it saves time in preparing detailed documentation. Results that may take up two to three pages of a report can be represented easily in one or even half of a page. It is an effective tool in representing the sales stats of a business, can even help in accurately displaying medical data that is easy and simple to understand.
