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: | Dryers: | Ovens: | Refrigerators: | Dishwashers: |

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?
