Line charts usually show how things change over a period of time, like monthly profits or annual attendances at sports events. It makes it easy to see how things have gone up or down and how they compare to other similar measurements. So in one of the previous examples, you could be showing monthly profits for different companies or regions, so there would be lots of lines on the chart.

### Create a line chart in c?

Charting is not a native function of the C language. Therefore,
the only way to do this is to use a 3rd party package for
graphing.
Even if you do not use a 3rd party package to create a line chart,
the actual method of generating the graphics is not native to C
either, so you would have to use some framework for that
process.
