headings a word or words that describes the data in a column or row of a data table or the x or y axis of a graph
horizontal axis (x) The line on the bottom of a graph; this is where the independent variable is placed

multiple line graph a line graph that has more than one line plotted on it
numerical increments The numbers plotted on the x and y axis that show your data; the numbers are plotted in even increments on both the x and y axis; for instance counting by twos or fives
