Question

# Mohammad constructs a scatter plot to show the data. What scales could he use for the X- and Y- axes.

HEIGHTS AND SHOE SIZES

Hint:

### A coordinate grid has two perpendicular lines. The horizontal axis is called the x-axis and the vertical axis is called the y- axis.

Scale is the distance between each square on the coordinate grid.

We are asked to find what scales Mohammed should use for the given table.

## The correct answer is: We are asked to find what scales Mohammed should use for the given table.

### ANSWER

Step 1 of 2:

The shoe size can be taken on the y- axis. Analyzing the values, they lie between 5 and 8.

So, an interval of two, starting from 0 to 8 can be marked on the y- axis. This indicates that the scale used for the axis is one unit for two shoe sizes.

Step 2 of 2:

The height can be taken on the x- axis. Their range is 54 to 64.

Mark a kink on the x- axis as the scale on the axis does not start from zero.

So, an interval of two, starting from the point 54 to 64 can be marked on the x- axis. This indicates that the scale used for the axis is one unit for a height of two inches.

A kink is a zigzag line that is usually drawn in the x- axis near the origin when the scale on the axis does not start from zero. It denotes the missing divisions.
