# Which type of graph is appropriate for continuous data?

Discrete data is best represented using bar charts. Temperature graphs would usually be line graphs because the data is continuous . When you are graphing percentages of a distribution a pie chart would be suitable.

Also know, what type of graph is used for continuous data?

Line Graph A line graph reveals trends or progress over time and can be used to show many different categories of data. You should use it when you chart a continuous data set.

Additionally, which type of graph is best for categorizing data? a Bar Graph. Bar graphs are used to compare things between different groups or to track changes over time. However, when trying to measure change over time, bar graphs are best when the changes are larger.

One may also ask, can pie charts be used for continuous data?

Discrete data is information that can only take certain values. This type of data is often represented using tally charts, bar charts or pie charts. Continuous data is data that can take any value. Height, weight, temperature and length are all examples of continuous data.

What is continuous data examples?

A continuous data set (the focus of our lesson) is a quantitative data set that can have values that are represented as values or fractions. Weight, height, temperature, etc. are examples of measurement that would make up a continuous data set. Always remember this: you can't have half a basketball.
