There are many ways to express numerical information, the presentation of numerical information in graphical form can vary according to the needs of the person using the information. For example: using a pie chart emphasizes the relative part of each parameter of the whole, a chart with a line emphasizes the difference between the parts, and sometimes a standard list is the quickest and easiest way to convey what we want to convey. Just like the grocery shopping list at the store. Here are a number of options for displaying data graphically.
