What does balance measure and in what units? measures mass and in g (grams)
Qualitative data describes appearance, smell, texture, sound or taste (no measurement)
quantitative data measurements (length, volume, mass)
For what kind of data do you use a bar graph? data that comes in separate, distinct categories. when the independent variable is qualitative
For what kind of data do you use a line graph? for data where the independent variable is quantitative - when you are watching ONE THING (OR AN AVERAGE OF THINGS) over CONTINUOUS TIME
