Definition: A line graph is a picture of a table of values. The table must have exactly 2 rows.Of course, the table can have exactly 2 columns. In textbooks, we like rows because it saves space
Rule: Each point on the line graph is a column (2 pieces of data).
Here is a table of data with exactly two rows.
|Rule: The data in the top row goes horizontally to the right and the data in the bottom row goes vertically up the side.|
