 Posted - 04/24/2012 :  22:17:51 What graph would have been better than a split bar graph to show the average monthly rainfall in two months (over a year)?I think that the line graph would have been better because the line graph is meant to show things that happen over time.I need at least 6 reasons to justify why the certain graph is better.PLEASE HELP ME!!! I am very lost!!!! I really need quick, reliable help!!! Edited by - Tessa on 04/25/2012 00:14:59
