• how do you use graphing in your everyday life?
• graphing can be used to look at patterns and correlations in data sets. once, at school, we looked to see if there was a correlation between attendance and ranking in major league baseball. what we found was that most of the time the more people who went to see a team, the higher the teams ranking was (or the other way around). graphing can be used in businesses to do things like track sales or see if some things are over all better than others. basically, graphing has hundreds of different purposes.
