## Which graph uses vertical and horizontal bars?

bar chart

A bar chart or bar graph is a chart or graph that presents categorical data with rectangular bars with heights or lengths proportional to the values that they represent. The bars can be plotted vertically or horizontally. A vertical bar chart is sometimes called a column chart.

**What do you call the graph which uses horizontal or vertical bars to represent data?**

A bar chart represents data categories using vertical or rectangular bars that are proportional to numerical values. It highlights the relationship between data groups and statistical values. A bar graph details changes in data groups over time. A bar chart shows the frequency of each data category.

### Is a graph that uses horizontal or vertical bars to display countable data?

Ch. 7 Vocabulary

A | B |
---|---|

bar graph | A graph that uses vertical or horizontal bars to display data |

circle graph | A graph that uses sectors of a circle to compare parts to the whole & parts to other parts. |

frequency table | A table that lists items together according to the number of times that the items occur |

**What is horizontal bar graph?**

A horizontal bar chart is a graph in the form of rectangular bars. It’s a data visualization technique. The length of these bars is proportional to the values they represent. The bar chart title indicates which data is represented.

## Which graph uses vertical bars to represent data?

Answer: A graph that uses vertical bars to represent data is called Bar graph.

**What is the example of bar graph?**

Bar graphs are commonly used in financial analysis for displaying data. A stock volume chart is a commonly used type of vertical bar graph. A histogram is an example of a bar graph used in statistical analysis that depicts a probability distribution in some data or sample.

### Is histogram and bar graph the same?

A bar graph is the graphical representation of categorical data using rectangular bars where the length of each bar is proportional to the value they represent. A histogram is the graphical representation of data where data is grouped into continuous number ranges and each range corresponds to a vertical bar.

**What is a vertical bar graph?**

A graph that visually displays data using vertical bars going up from the bottom, whose lengths are proportional to quantities they represent. It can be used when one axis cannot have a numerical scale.

## What do you call a vertical bar graph?

The bar graphs that represent the grouped data vertically are called vertical bar graphs. The data categories are shown on the horizontal axis and the data values are shown on the vertical axis. The bar graphs that represent the grouped data horizontally are called horizontal bar graphs.

**What are the different types of bar charts?**

Types of Bar Charts: The types of bar charts are as follows: Vertical bar chart. Horizontal bar chart. Range bar chart.

### What makes a bar graph different from other graphs?

The bar graphs have two lines, horizontal and vertical axis, also called the x and y-axis along with the title, labels, and scale range. Some properties that make a bar graph unique and different from other types of graphs are given below:

**Which is better a histogram or a bar chart?**

In the bar chart, discrete data is plotted, whereas, in the histogram, it plots the continuous data. For instance, if we have different categories of data like types of dog breeds, types of TV programs, the bar chart is best as it compares the things among different groups.
