# Line Plot to Organize Data

## Key Concepts

• Prepare a line plot to organize the data

## Introduction

### Measure

We can measure the length of an object.

Example:

Measure the length of the object.

Solution:

Place the object on a ruler and measure the actual length.

So, the length of the brush is 7 centimeters.

### Data

Measure all the lengths of the object and use a table to record that data.

Example:

Measure all the lengths of the object and use a table to record that data.

Solution:

The lengths of the objects are measured, and the table shows the different lengths of the objects.

We can show the data in a line plot which is shown in the table. Place a dot over the number that shows each length.

Example:

Measure the length of the object.

Solution:

Place the object on a ruler and measure the actual length.

So, the length of the object is 4 centimeters.

Example:

Measure the length of the object.

Solution:

Place the object on a ruler and measure the actual length.

So, the length of the object is 6 centimeters.

Example:

Measure the length of the object.

Solution:

Place the object on a ruler and measure the actual length.

So, the length of the object is 6 centimeters.

#### Composite Figures – Area and Volume

A composite figure is made up of simple geometric shapes. It is a 2-dimensional figure of basic two-dimensional shapes such as squares, triangles, rectangles, circles, etc. There are various shapes whose areas are different from one another. Everything has an area they occupy, from the laptop to your book. To understand the dynamics of composite […] #### Special Right Triangles: Types, Formulas, with Solved Examples.

How are these ratios related to the Pythagorean theorem?  Right Angle Triangles A triangle with a ninety-degree […] #### Ways to Simplify Algebraic Expressions

Simplify algebraic expressions in Mathematics is a collection of various numeric expressions that multiple philosophers and historians have brought down. Talking of algebra, this branch of mathematics deals with the oldest concepts of mathematical sciences, geometry, and number theory. It is one of the earliest branches in the history of mathematics. The study of mathematical […]
