# STATISTICS (DISPLAYING DATA) ```STATISTICS
(DISPLAYING DATA)
A graph is a visual representation of data that displays the more
relationship among the variables. Graphs can present data
clearly and concisely than a table or written text.
Data can be numerical or categorical (types).
continuous data:
data that can have any numerical value
within a finite or infinite interval
ex.
discrete data:
data that are distinct and can be counted
ex.
A histogram or line graph may be used to display continuous data.
A bar graph or circle graph may be used to represent discrete data.

50 – 59
60 – 69
70 – 79
80 – 89
90 – 100
