Line and area charts  Line chart ◦ shows trends, increases or decreases in quantities or events over time, and comparisons and relationships among numbers  Area chart ◦ more dramatic version of a line chart because the area under the line is shaded to the baseline below     18
  19. Infographics FIGURE 17.5 Line and Area Charts     19
  20. Infographics • Quantitative (continued) 3.  Pie charts ◦ circular in design and demonstrate the relationship or distribution of parts, or slices (items), to the whole     20
