How to Construct a Scatter Plot
A scatter plot gives you a visual idea of what is happening with your data. Scatter plots in statistics create the foundation for linear regression, where we take scatter plots and try to create a usable model using functions. There are just three steps to creating a scatter plot.
Sample question: create a scatter plot for the following data:
Step 1: Draw a graph. Label the x- and y- axis. Choose a range that includes the maximums and minimums from the given data. For example, our x-values go from 3 to 6.3, so a range from 3 to 7 would be appropriate.
