When
should I use a graph; line, pie chart, or Bar graph?

I was
hoping that I would be better at doing word problems. It is an unfortunate
short coming. I think that I may not struggle as much once the equations are
complete because I am able to do some of them. I can not worry to much so, when
I use a line chart, I want to point out the negative side of the number line
which may be to the left of zero. I would use that number line to rate my
happiness with word problems a negative two (-2). I am seeing a upside because
I can do the math. So I would go to the right side of zero and rate it a seven (7)
I rate it that low because I have room for improvement.

Pie
Charts

My
total amount of success in algebraic proportions can be related to me being 80%
satisfied with the overall situation. If this was represented graphically I would
use the pie chart, and the majority of the sections would represent my
satisfaction and happiness with my own work. The proportion part may look like
this out of a possible 100%; = both equaling to 20% dissatisfied with my own
work. This section of this post only goes to show how simple pie charts can be
to represent graphical information.

Conclusion
bar graphs

Bar graphs may
be very simple into you turn it into a word problem and the math become
involved. I like math and this will be a struggle that may be due to the format
I am in. I will enjoy getting answers correct and the excitement I feel
connected to figuring out the work. “Confidence can sometimes be built upon
