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.)

Example:

Line plot of cars sold (x for each sold)

_ X _ X

_ X X X

X X 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)

### What is a plot line in a story?

A plot line in a story is the author's route from the beginning
of a story to the end of the story. A plot line tells the reader
what is going on or about to happen. For example, in a murder
mystery, the plot line would be all the different ways a detective
might investigate that murder until the end when the murderer is
revealed.
