2-6.

For the problem below, display the data using a dot plot, bar graph, or Venn diagram. Decide which type of data display is best and explain why.

Appliances sold at Housemart during the month of September:

Washers: $35$       Dryers: $21$       Ovens: $19$
Refrigerators: $27$       Dishwashers: $23$

Since there is no overlapping data, a Venn diagram would not be useful.  Which would be better a dot plot or bar graph?  Create both of these. Does that help you to explain your reasoning?
