A line plot is a graph that indicates the frequency of values along a range of possibilities. These may be numerical or other forms of data. An X is placed for each occurrence of a given value. (This is analogous to a vertical bar graph.)


Line plot of cars sold (x for each sold)

_ X _ X

1 2 3 4

1 = car type 1 (one sold)

2 = car type 2 (three sold)

3 = car type 3 (two sold)

4 = car type 4 (three sold)
