Data Handling

When studying data, look at the title and axis titles to give you clues about what you are looking for.

Then, look carefully at the scale for each axis: how much does each "gap" represent?

Consider what a data point is worth if it is half-way through a "gap" (e.g. look at the bar graph below. The first bar is worth 5 because it is half-way between 4 and 6).
